Nepal PM sacks labour minister
The Prime Minister has appointed MS Thapa of the Rastriya Janamukti Party in Sarita Giri`s place.
Kathmandu: Nepalese Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai on Friday sacked Labour and Transport Management Minister Sarita Giri, a media report said.
The Prime Minister`s decision came after Giri`s defiance of directives to usher in reforms in foreign employment and taking tough action against manpower companies involved in duping migrant workers, Xinhua reported citing news website myrepublica.com.
The Prime Minister has appointed MS Thapa of the Rastriya Janamukti Party in Giri`s place.
In a bid to curb malpractices and duping by the mushrooming manpower agencies, the Prime Minister`s office had ordered the Labour and Transport Management Ministry to meet foreign companies` demands for manpower only after getting a clearance from Nepal`s missions based in the home countries of these companies.
