KATHMANDU: Nepal’s envoy to India, Deep Kumar Upadhyay, has submitted his resignation to Nepal’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Friday to ease his way to contest the elections slated for next months.

Upadhyay on Friday submitted his resignation letter to Nepal’s Foreign Minister Krishna Bahadur Mahara stating his plan to return to the 'normal life' and is planning to contest the election from the Nepali Congress from Kapilavastu, the birth place of Lord Buddha.

The Government of Nepal is yet to decide over his resignation application, which he submitted 11 months after taking charge. He has made the plan to announce his candidacy for the election as soon as his resignation is accepted by the government.

Upadhyay, who also served as the Minister and Central Committee Member of Nepali Congress, was appointed as the envoy for the first time in 2015 and was called back in 2016 by KP Sharma Oli-led Government.

The KP Oli Government at that time blamed him of making attempts to collapse the government, but was again re-appointed by Pushpa Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda'-led government.
