New Delhi: Top leaders of the Communist Party in Nepal have demanded Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli’s resignation during a meeting of the standing committee on Tuesday.
Senior leaders Pushpa Kamal Dahal, Madhav Nepal, Jhalnath Khanal and Bamdev Gautam and others have demanded Oli’s immediate resignation after his recent remarks that India is conspiring against him and trying to get him removed from his position.
“The Prime Minister’s remarks that India was conspiring to remove him was neither politically correct nor diplomatically appropriate,” said former Nepal prime minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal.
“Such a statement by the Prime Minister may damage our relations with the neighbour,” he added.
Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli alleged that there have been various kinds of conspiracies in “embassies and hotels” to dethrone him from power. Oli also alleged that some of the Nepalese leaders were involved in the activities too.
Reacting to the allegations made by PM Oli, a senior leader of his own party said that accusing India and leaders of the party was not appropriate.
This is not the first time that leaders of his own party have asked Prime Minister Oli to resign from power and in April too, was asked to step down from his position.
