Nepal President Ramchandra Paudel economic advisor chiranjibi resign his post due to new hundred rupee note

Nepal New Currency: The Economic Advisor to the President had to resign after criticizing his government in Nepal and presenting India’s side. In fact, the President’s economic advisor Chiranjibi had opposed Nepal’s decision to print some areas of India on the new notes. He had called this step of Nepal government unfair, after which he had to face opposition. Only last week, the government of Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal had decided to print new notes of Rs 100. In this, approval was given to show India’s Lipulekh, Limpiyadhura and Kalapani areas in the new map of Nepal, which was also opposed by India, because India claims these areas as its own.

According to the report of Kathmandu Post, Nepal’s President Ramchandra Paudel has accepted the resignation of the economic advisor. This information was given in the press release. The statement said that the President has thanked him for his contribution so far while in office.

Supported India, hence had to resign
In an interview to Indian Express, Chiranjibi said, Nepal government’s decision to show Indian territories on the new notes is unwise. Chiranjibi’s remarks were also opposed by KP Sharma Oli’s party. Oli had publicly criticized the President’s economic advisor. According to Nepali media, Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal had also talked to President Ram Chandra Paudel in this regard. During this time he had demanded the removal of Chiranjibi.

Controversy going on since May 3
Actually, on May 3, the decision to print new notes was taken in the Cabinet of Nepal. Regarding this, Information and Communications Minister Rekha Sharma had said that the Cabinet has approved redesigning the Rs 100 bank note and printing a new map on the back of the bank note. On June 18, 2020, Nepal had also unilaterally declared Lipulekh, Kalapani and Limpiyadhura as its territory. Since then there is a dispute going on between India and Nepal.
