Kathmandu, Sept 17: Brigadier General Tara Bahadur Karki is to assume the responsibility of the spokesperson of the Nepalese Army (NA), replacing the current spokesman Brigadier General Jagadish Chandra Pokharel.
Karki has been taking the responsibility of the Chief of Staff of the NA Western Region Division, Pokhara so far.
The Army Headquarters has already sent a proposal on Karkiâ€™s appointment to the Council of Ministers for action, recommending him for the responsibility.
Incumbent spokesman Pokharel will assume leadership of the Army Command and Staff College, Shivapuri. He has served as spokesman for two years.
Both Karki and Pokharel are contemporaries. They will formally take charge of their new responsibilities in a day or two after the Council of Ministers endorses the proposal.
