BIRATNAGAR: Newly appointed Chief Minister of Province 1 Bhim Acharya has appointed two ministers in his Cabinet on Friday.
According to a source, Bal Bahadur Samsohang of Taplejung has been appointed as minister for social development and Laxman Tiwari as the minister for Industry, Tourism, Forest and Environment.
Earlier, both of them were close to the Madhav Nepal faction. Though Nepal formed a new party CPN (Unified Socialist), they decided to stay in the CPN-UML.
