Kathmandu, July 3
The future of Nepal Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli will be decided at a crucial Standing Committee meeting of the ruling communist party on Saturday, party sources said on Friday, amidst growing demand for his resignation.
The meeting of the Nepal Communist Party’s 45-member Standing Committee, the most powerful body of the party, on Thursday had been put off as the top brass of the party failed to forge consensus on the resignation of Oli. Top NCP leaders on Tuesday demanded Oli’s resignation, saying his recent anti-India remarks were “neither politically correct nor diplomatically appropriate.”
“The PM’s remarks that India was conspiring to remove him were neither politically correct nor diplomatically appropriate,” executive chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ had said. — PTI
