Transferred Health Secy Chaudhary returns to work

- Atul Mishra, Kathmandu

Nov 4, 2018-

Health Secretary Dr Pushpa Chaudhary, who was abruptly transferred by the government, has rejoined work on Sunday at the Health Ministry following a Supreme Court order.

The apex court’s order came on Friday following a hearing on a writ petition filed by Dr Chaudhary against the government move on Thursday.

The government had transferred Dr Chaudhary along with Urban Secretary Dipendra Nath Sharma to the PMO without giving any clear reasons behind the move on October 24. Dr Sushil Pyakurel had taken up the role of the Health Secretary.

Dr Chaudhary, talking to the post, informed that she rejoined work at the ministry at 12pm on Sunday.

According to sources privy to the matter, said that Dr Chaudhary lost her job because she did not have good working relations with Health and Population Minister Upendra Yadav with the latter urging Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli to find a replacement, saying that she was uncooperative and making controversial decisions.

Minister Yadav and Dr Chaudhary allegedly had serious differences on the issues of granting accreditation to a medical college and transfer of the ministry’s staff.
