Maoist Centre withdraws support to Lumbini Province government


Lumbini, March 6: The CPN (Maoist Centre) has withdrawn its support to the Lumbini Province government.

A meeting of the CPN (Maoist Centre) Lumbini Province parliamentary party decided to pull out its support to Chief Minister Dilli Bahadur Chaudhary who is from the Nepali Congress.     

According to Indrajeet Tharu, the party's chief whip for the province, the party on Wednesday submitted a letter to the Chief Minister's Secretariat informing later about its withdrawal of the support.
