Kathmandu, Nepal, May 2, 2021: Shankar Pokhrel has been reappointed as the Chief Minister of Lumbini Province. Lumbini Provincial Chief Dharmanatha Yadav appointed him in the post.
Responding to the letter submitted by Pokhrel claiming majority strength in the parliament, he was appointed in the post of Chief Minister.
