Nepal's Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal on Wednesday expanded his 11-member cabinet to induct 10 new ministers.

However, the protracted squabble with allies over power sharing continued even three weeks after Nepal assuming office with the parties from Terai not sending any new faces to the cabinet.

The new entrants comprise six ministers of state and four cabinet ministers, all of whom are from Nepal's Communist Party of Nepal-Unified Marxist Leninist and the Nepali Congress.
