Kirti Nidhi Bista (Nepali: कीर्तिनिधि विष्ट; 15 January 1927 – 11 November 2017)[1] was a Nepali politician.

Biography[edit]

Bista was born in Thamel, Kathmandu, Nepal in 1927.[2] He served as prime minister of Nepal from 1969 to 1970, 1971 to 1973 and 1977 to 1979.[3] After the coup d'état of King Gyanendra in 2005, Bista was appointed one of the vice-chairmen[4] until the government collapsed in April 2006 after the people's uprising. He is best remembered for resigning from the prime ministerial post after Singha Durbar burned down in 1973.

Bista died at his residence in Gyaneshwor on 11 November 2017. He was 90.[5][6][7] Bista had been battling a long-term cancer.[8][9][10][11]
