Khadka to return to Ministry after EC clears the deck

Kathmandu: The Election Commission (EC) has given its nod to the request of the Ministry of Supplies (MoS) seeking permission to depute Executive Director of the Nepal Oil Corporation Gopal Bahadur Khadka to the Ministry.

The Supreme Court had directed the government to allow Khadka to return to work responding to a writ petition against the decision of the government to sack him on the charge of misappropriating millions of rupees in purchasing the land for the NOC.

An EC’s meeting relating to its code of conduct held on Tuesday acted on the request of the MoS, and gave approval in this regard, said an EC official.
