Khanal asks Nepali-Tibetan-Indian Minister to resign!

Prime Minister Jhala Nath Khanal has allegedly suggested that newly appointed State Minister for Finance Lharkyal Lama resign from his post following controversies over his background. Lama has been accused of bearing an Indian passport in addition to his Nepali passport and Tibetan Refugee card.

The Chinese Embassy in Kathmandu has reportedly expressed its dissatisfaction with the Prime Minister’s Office over the appointment. Nepal holds One China Policy, and considers Tibet an autonomous state of China. Jhalanath Khanal has shot himself in the foot with the appointment!
