Nepali Prime Minister Prachanda on Monday resigned from his post.
Accepting the weakness that the government could not achieve during his tenure, Prachanda, also the chairman of the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist)(UCPN-M), declared resignation from his post when he was addressing to the nation.
Prachanda delivered the special message following the current political unrest on Monday.
Just before Prachanda's address in the name of countrymen, District Administration Office (DAO) of Kathmandu on Monday imposed prohibitory orders in some areas of the Nepali capital of Kathmandu.
The areas include Nepali President's residence in Shital Niwas and Army Headquarters and its surrounding areas.
All types of protests have been banned in and around these areas. Security personnel have also been posted at campuses in large numbers to avoid any untoward incident.
The Nepali government led by the UCPN-M on Sunday morning decided to sack Chief of Army Staff (CoAS) Rookmangud Katawal without the coalition's consensus. The Communist Party of Nepal (Unified Marxist-Leninist) (CPN- UML), which is the second largest party of the five-member ruling coalition, and the Sadbhavana Party led by Rajendra Mahato pulled out from the coalition government.
Late on Sunday, Nepali President Ram Baran Yadav faxed a special instruction to CoAS Katawal, asking him to continue in his office, which the UCPN-M leaders termed unconstitutional and meaningless.
The UCPN-M emerged from the Constituent Assembly elections in April 2008 as the single largest party and led the formation of the first republic government in August 2008.
Ahead of that, the formerly Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) led by Prachanda signed the Comprehensive Peace Accord with the then government in November, 2006, ending the decade civil war in Nepal.
