Kathmandu, 31 December (2020) - Supreme Court hearing on the writ petition against the expansion of federal cabinet has been deferred for the second day as well.

The single bench of Justiuce Kumar Regmi informed that it cannot hear the writ petition on Thursday due to scarcity of time, one of the petitioners Advovate Lokendra Oli said.

Justice Ishwor Khatiwada's bench had informed about unavailability of time to hear the writ petition on Wednesday.

Senior Advocate Dinesh Tripathi and Advocate Oli had filed separate writ petitions arguing that the prime minister has become caretaker after dissolving the parliament and he cannot expand the council of ministers.

PM KP Sharma Oli expanded the cabinet last Friday.
