Minister of Information Gokul Baskota has resigned from his post on Thursday afternoon.
Speaker of the House of Representatives (HoR) Agni Prasad Sapkota informed the House of this recent development. “We will definitely receive a formal written notice soon. However, I have been informed that the concerned minister (referring to Baskota) has tendered his resignation already.”
Baskota was dragged into controversy following the leakage of his audio clip in which he is heard to be bargaining for commission in the process of procuring the security printing press.
