Newly-elected Chief Minister of the Koshi province, Kedar Karki said the incumbent government was formed in Koshi province to avoid the situation of mid-term election in the province.

Talking to journalists after receiving appointment letter from Koshi Province Chief Parshuram Khapung on Saturday, Karki said the government was formed on the joint efforts of province assembly members to rekindle hope for development and prosperity among the people.

CM Karki expressed his hope that the Nepali Congress (NC) would positively take the government that has been formed as per the Article 168 (5) of the Nepal Constitution.

Karki further pledged to work for the welfare of the people using authority given to the Chief Minister by the Constitution and laws.

He further shared the Council of Ministers would be formed after taking oath of office.

Meanwhile, parliamentary party leader of the NC Koshi province Uddhav Thapa has resigned from the post.

Organizing a press conference here on Saturday, Thapa informed he tendered his resignation from the post as it was not morally appropriate to stay in the position due to the evolving incidents in terms of the formation of province government.

Extending best wishes to the newly-appointed CM Karki, leader Thapa said the party would continue to support him.

The political development in the province would not affect the ruling coalition anymore, he said, adding the coalition would sustain in the province up to next election.

Earlier today, NC Koshi province parliamentary party meeting took place today where 19 out of 29 members were present. ---
