Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Health and Population Upendra Yadav has tendered his resignation to the Prime Minister, citing inability to cooperate within the current political climate.

In a letter addressed to the Prime Minister on Monday, Yadav, who also serves as the president of Janata Samajwadi Party, Nepal, expressed his decision to step down, emphasizing the challenges faced in maintaining collaboration while in government.

The resignation comes in the wake of recent political upheaval, notably the division within JaSaPa Nepal, during Yadav’s absence on a foreign tour.

Minister of State for Forests and Environment, Deepak Karki, has also stepped down from his position alongside Yadav. President Yadav, during a press conference last Wednesday, voiced his concerns over the party’s split, alleging illegality and attributing it to a misunderstanding fueled by the Prime Minister’s apprehensions regarding possible collaboration with Nepali Congress.
