Nepal: Communist PM K P Oli Faces Revolt As He Worsens Relations With IndiaK P Sharma Oli, Prime Minister of Nepal

Nepal's communist Prime Minister K P Oli is facing a revolt from within his party amid acts of him worsening diplomatic relations with India, Times Of India has reported.

Oli's biggest adversary in the party P K Dahal Prachanda has now indicated that he is fed up with the unilateral manner of Oli's functioning. The report adds that Oli is already facing calls to tender his resignation.

The fault lines were out in the open during the communist party standing committee meeting this week when Oli and Prachanda hurled allegations of failing the government and the party against each other. Though worryingly for Oli, his faction is believed to be in a minority in the crucial committee.

This development comes at a time when Oli has worsened the nation's relations with India by claiming the latter's territories and issuing a new map of the country. Oli is also facing heat over reports of China annexing a village in the country while also occupying land near the border.
