All the PM's kith



Among the many accusations against the prime minister, one is of nepotism. Never before, other than in the Rana regime, have so many members of one family exercised control over so many important posts. Under Girija Prasad Koirala\'s leadership, members of his clan have moved into many prominent positions, and are creating their personal fiefdoms. Moreover, friends, assistants and personal domestic help, have been given important areas to run as they see fit.

The children of B.P. Koirala, too, are in important positions, but the general public holds no grudge against them. But against the present prime minister\'s brood, the public nurses no such feelings, and it is only a matter of time before they vent their anger and frustration.

A partial list of the members of the PM\'s clan is given below along with the positions they hold:
