He was elected from Kathmandu-5 in the by-election of 1992 after earlier winner Madan Bhandari left the seat. He also won the legislative election of 1994 from Kathmandu-7. However, he was defeated in the 1999 parliamentary elections in Kathmandu-9. He contested from the same constituency in the CA Election 2008 but was defeated again.
