Oli wanted to remove Upendra Yadav from govt, but Dahal saved him

While removing six ministers and three state ministers from his Cabinet to replace them by nine other leaders, Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has changed the portfolios of two ministers only. Upendra Yadav, the central committee chairman of Samajwadi Party, has been sent to the Ministry of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs from the Ministry of Health and Population.

On the other hand, he removed another Samajwadi leader Surendra Yadav from the position of state minister for health, and appointed the Nepal Communist Party’s Nawa Raj Rawat to replace him.

Sources in both the NCP and the Samajwadi Party say Oli and the NCP leadership did not consult Yadav or any Samajwadi leader about the reshuffle. This move, hence, has given a message that Oli is not happy with the party’s performance in the government.
