Member-Secretary, Yuvaraj Lama and other officials have filed a writ petition at Supreme Court over the unilateral decision of the Minister for Sports, Purushottam Poudel, to expel them from their respective posts at the National Sports Council (NSC).
Expelled Lama and others have moved the apex court stressing that their four years term has not yet come to an end.
Minister Poudel had sacked six officials from their various posts at the NSC last Friday.
Meanwhile, Minister Poudel has appointed joint-secretary at the Ministry of Sports, Chuda Mani Poudel as the new Member-Secretary of the NSC.
The newly elected Member-Secretary Poudel has assumed his office from today (Sunday).
