Government prepares to sack NT MD Rajbhandari and NTA chair Jha

The government has sought clarification from managing director of Nepal Telecom (NT), Kamini Rajbhandari, in a move to sack her.
Though the clarification has been sought doubting her managerial efficiency and blaming her for falling competitiveness of the telecom service provider in domestic sector, the government is planning to sack her, according to a high level source at the Ministry of Information and Communications.
The cabinet meeting today has decided to seek clarification from Rajbhandari, who is the first managing director in the history of Nepal Telecom to be selected from free competition. She still has almost 3 years to complete her tenure.
The source at the Ministry claimed that the efficiency of Nepal Telecom’s management has been deteriorating in recent times, compelling the government to seek clarification from the telecom service provider's top management.
Though the source also claimed that the Ministry will take necessary decisions only after analysing the clarification by Rajbhandari, clarification is sought to sack her.   
However, Rajbhandari said that she is yet to receive a letter from the government seeking her clarification.
The majority government led by Prime Minister K P Oli has also asked Nepal Telecommunications Authority (NTA) – the regulatory authority of the telecom service providers – chair Digamber Jha not to take any decision in a clear indication that he could also be sacked.
But the frequent changes in the regulatory authority on the basis of political ideology will create anarchy in the market impacting the consumers due to weak regulator.
