Congress leader Mahat to join cabinet
Nepali Congress leader Ram Sharan Mahat is taking the oath of office as a minister without portfolio in the swearing-in ceremony being held Tuesday afternoon at Shital Niwas.
According to Congress sources, the newly elected Prime Minister Sushil Koirala also wanted the party leader Prakash Man Singh to take the oath as a minister without portfolio.
But Singh insisted that he be sworn in as deputy prime minister.
"As we are yet to settle the power sharing issue with UML, Koirala asked him to join the cabinet later," said the source.
Mahat will be the only minister from the Congress to take the oath in the swearing-in ceremony at Shital Niwas.
UML is also not sending its ministers to take the oath after Koirala rejected to give the home ministry to the party.
President Ram Baran Yadav will administer oath to the newly elected Prime Minister Koirala and Mahat.

Time to employ Nepali ways
We have internalized the negative facets of westernization, globalization and individualism rather than their positive aspects. They are influencing us at the cost of our roots and cultural values and norms. Copying others become meaningful only when we integrate our own creativity and ideas into the things we copy. Only then we can gradually progress from being followers to becoming leaders.
