Deuba is likely to lead the big­gest-ever cab­i­net

People's Review - - NEWS - By Our Re­porter

The term of the present par­lia­ment and the gov­ern­ment ends on Jan­uary 21, 2018 and many of the lead­ers who are now law­mak­ers can never be elected in the par­lia­ment. As such, they want to be­come min­is­ters even for three months and Prime Min­is­ter Sher Ba­hadur Deuba who had earned a bad name for form­ing the big­gest cab­i­net in the past seems to be ready to in­duct as many min­is­ters as he can. Although the con­sti­tu­tion has a clear pro­vi­sion that the num­ber of min­is­ters should be lim­ited to 25, Deuba is now lead­ing a 50-mem­ber cab­i­net. Even K P Oli and Pushpa Ka­mal Da­hal had vi­o­lated this con­sti­tu­tional pro­vi­sion. The in­duc­tion of more mem­bers in the cab­i­net clearly showed that the lead­ers of the rul­ing par­ties are least both­ered about the peo­ple's prob­lems, they in­tend to loot as much as they can. In a bid to sat­isfy the de­sire of many lead­ers to be­come min­is­ter once in their life, Deuba in­ducted 15 state min­is­ters rep­re­sent­ing NC and the Neap Lok­tantrik Fo­rum a day be­fore he was to leave for In­dia. Ear­lier, he had in­ducted eight state min­is­ters from the Maoist­cen­tre. This is the first cab­i­net to have the largest num­ber of state min­is­ters at 23. Now the cab­i­net has three deputy prime min­is­ter 19 min­is­ters and 23 state min­is­ters.
