New ministers, Budhabar



BIKRAM RAI
Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai has set a new record by forming the biggest cabinet in the history of Republican Nepal. The 46-member cabinet is only two less than the jumbo cabinet of Sher Bahadur Deuba, and the place for defence minister is still vacant. It is ironical that this is coming from a prime minister who boasted that austerity was his motto. He has shown himself to be like everyone else.
