As per reports from Nepal media party’s co-chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal and other senior leaders including Madhav Nepal, Jhala Nath Khanal and Bamdev Gautam asked Oli to quit citing his government’s alleged failure in handling several issues and accused him of using diversionary tactics such as playing the India card to cover up the shortcomings.
“As things progressed, party co-chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal asked PM Oli to quit owing to the government’s gross, all-round incompetence, according to a source close to Dahal. Many NCP (NCP) leaders came down heavily on PM Oli for failing to deliver as well as for applying diversion tactics to fend off criticisms,” said a report in thehimalayantimes.com.
The Nepali news website added that the Oli’s rival faction is “hell bent” to force him to either quit the Prime Ministerial post or the position of party co-chair. It said that Oli again raised the India issue to wriggle out of the tight corner he was forced into over other domestic issues.
As per reports, KP Oli has refused to resign from the post despite the raging internal conflict in the party. After his refusal, Prachanda even threatened to divide the ruling Communist Party. However, Oli has blamed India for the ongoing political moves in the country.
