Kathmandu, Jan 20: Deputy Speaker Dr Shiva Maya Tumbahangphe has  resigned from her post and said patriarchy is stronger than the monarchy. In a press meet she said “We uprooted the monarchy but still the patriarchy is strong in the country”.

Stating that she was the Deputy Speaker for the Parliament rather than her Party (NCP), Tumbahangphe explained that she could not obey the instruction of the NCP to tender resignation. She added “I was back up by the constitution but not by any external power or people.”

Meanwhile in meeting of the parliament, she said  “I am firm that my opinions were not inspired by any unnatural ambition or unethical urging.” The post of Speaker has been vacant after Krishna Bahadur Mahara resigned from the post over the allegation of sexual abuse from a female staffers of the Parliament Secretariat. The meeting to the NCP Secretariat on Sunday had finalized to elect Agni Prasad Sapkota as the Speaker.
