Kathmandu: Outgoing Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has left the Prime Minister’s official residence at Baluwatar and shifted to his private house in Balkot of Bhaktapur on Wednesday.

President Bidya Devi Bhandari had on Tuesday appointed Nepali Congress president Sher Bahadur Deuba the new Prime Minister in line with the Supreme Court’s mandamus for the same. The Supreme Court had on Monday issued a decision reinstating the dissolved House of Representatives and the mandamus order.

The outgoing PM Oli shifted from the PM’s official residence today after Deuba took the oath of office and secrecy of the Prime Minister on Tuesday.

Oli’s supporters escorted him to Balkot, chanting slogans in his support.
