3 JSP-N leaders lose PA seats in Lumbini Province
KATHMANDU: Three leaders, who were appointed as the ministers from Janata Samajbadi Party-Nepal (JSP-N), have lost their seats in Lumbini Province.
Issuing a notice on Friday, the Province Assembly Secretariat said that Santosh Kumar Pandey, Bijay Kumar Yadav and Kalpana Pandey were removed from the Provincial Assembly seats following party’s action.
The JSP-N had decided to take disciplinary action against the lawmakers for defying the party whip not to vote in favour of Provincial Assembly’s policies and programmes.
The Parliamentary Party of the Lumbini Province on Thursday wrote a letter directing the Province Assembly to take action against the trio after the Election Commission granted legal recognisation to the Upendra Yadav-led faction.
