Nilambar Acharya set to be Nepal’s envoy to India


Former Nepali law minister Nilambar Acharya is now the hill State’s envoy to India. The Nepal government nominated him to take over the post, which was lying vacant for about a year now after Deep Kumar Upadhyay resigned October last year to join politics. A cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli proposed Acharya’s name for the diplomatic post, officials said. However, Acharya’s appointment by the leading Nepali Communist Party came as a surprise for many owing to his well-known affiliation to the Nepali Congress Party.
