Biratnagar, Nepal, February 21, 2021: Rival faction of the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) led by Pushpa Kamal Dahal and Madhav Kumar Nepal has tabled a no-confidence motion against the chief minister of Province 1, Sherdhan Rai on Suday. 

Provincial lawmaker, who was also the former minister of the provincial government, Indra Bahadur Aangbo presented the motion, which was seconded by Laxman Tiwari, another provincial lawmaker. Chief Minister Rai is close to the faction of the ruling party led by Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli.

As the Oli led faction has no majority strength in the provincial assembly, it has been creating obstruction to endorse the no-confidence motion registered against the chief minister Rai.  It is guessed that Chief Minister Rai would dissolve the provincial assembly before the meeting called for March 4.
