Share the News



In fast-moving developments in the Himalayan nation, Nepal Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli met President Bidhya Devi Bhandari on Thursday and “handed over a document” before heading into a hurriedly-convened meeting of the cabinet. PM Oli is learnt to have handed over a document to the President, sparking speculation about its contents.

PM Oli’s meeting with President Bhandari was his second in two days.

PM Oli’s meeting with the President followed another round of discussions in the Nepal Communist Party’s standing committee meeting. Thursday’s meeting was attended by 40 members. Of them, 30 were against Oli.

PM Oli had last week accused New Delhi of orchestrating efforts to topple him in an effort to put the rival faction led by co-chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal on a back foot. PM Oli, speaking at an event on Sunday, had claimed that his rivals were trying to pull the rug from under his feet because he had brought out a new political map that had upset Nepal’s giant neighbour. But this attempt appeared to have backfired.
