Udayapur CDO recalled at Home Ministry
- Pradip Raj Kandel appointed in place of Chandra Man Shrestha
Dec 1, 2017-Udayapur Chief District Officer Chandra Man Shrestha was recalled at the Home Ministry on Friday, citing his failure to maintain peace and security in the district in the run up to the second phase of elections for House of Representatives and Provincial elections.
The Home Ministry has sent Pradip Raj Kandel in place of Shrestha, who was transferred to the district some 6 months ago.
Shrestha has been criticised for his failure to stop a series of explosions that took place in the district ahead of the upcoming polls.
Seven people, including a Nepali Congress (NC) candidate for the federal parliament from Udaypur Constituency 2, Narayan Bahadur Karki, were injured when an improvised explosive device exploded at Dunuwarbeshi of the district on November 29.
On November 28, NC leader Narayan Khadka survived an explosion at Triyuga Municipality-10 while he was on his way to Beldobhan to participate in a poll rally.
