My attempted survey (blog of Sept. 18th) is hereby happily canceled. The good news:
Minister Yadav resigns
Minister for Land Reform and Management Matrika Yadav has forwarded his resignation to Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal Friday afternoon.
In his resignation submitted to PM Dahal, Yadav has accused Madhesi Janadhikar Forum and CPN (UML), partners in the current coalition government, of being anti-people parties.
He submitted the resignation to the PM at his official residence in Baluwatar.
Stating that he had acted in favour of the people, Yadav reiterated to remain a pro-people politician.
Earlier, the party had instructed Yadav to apologise publicly or resign as minister. Other members of the coalition and opposition Nepali Congress had condemned the acts of Yadav and demanded action against him. nepalnews.com ia Sep 19 08
