Faced with party revolt, Nepal PM blames India
NEW DELHI: The recent strife in ties with Kathmandu has foregrounded again India's old fault lines with Nepal PM K P Oli. Faced with dissension in the ruling co unist party, Oli Sunday accused Indian authorities, including the Indian embassy, of plotting his ouster.
Oli was Sunday quoted as having said that conspiracies were being hatched to ensure his removal after he released Nepal's new map which shows territories in India's Uttarakhand state as belonging to Nepal.
"Given the ongoing intellectual discussions, media reports from New Delhi, embassy’s activities and meetings at different hotels in Kathmandu, it is not very difficult to understand how people are openly active to oust me. But they won’t succeed," he was quoted as saying by Kathmandu Post.
Oli's remarks, and an apparent nationalist stance, come at a time his position is being seen as "shaky" because of factionalism in the ruling party and his rival and former PM P K Dahal Prachanda coming out against the PM's alleged autocratic style of functioning.
Indian officials refused to comment on Oli's remarks. A source reiterated though India's position that Nepal was a valued neighbour and that the focus was on ensuring supplies of essentials to Nepal in the middle of the Covid-19 crisis remained unaffected.
India was accused of having a role in Oli's downfall in August, 2016, too when his first term as PM, which lasted only for 9 months, ended.
Oli is in trouble. India is plot a re gie change in Nepal. Price to pay for offending/disobeying a superpower.
What India is a super power ?! I did not know that.
Both oli are in trouble these days.

The puppet Nepali PM will pay dearly for all his anti-India activities.
If India can ouster you that means, your people support India and that also means, you went against your people’s wish. Mr. Oil - You are selling Nepal to Chinese people just to remain as PM.
Nothing wrong if India masterminds Mr. Oli's ouster. Let him go. Nepal and Nepali's people will be benefited.
BHOMAN JOKER PG PARTY
THEN INDIA IS NO DIFFERENT FROM PAKISTAN TALIBN
Nepal can not be controlled by the china
Thanks Oli ! Please keep beating your chest - it will help the change the perception of India as a Benign, Helpless, Submissive & Soft Nation
Well, thats wonderful news. Good to see India in action.
Those who are subverting India's genuine interest should be perished
Why doesnt this idiot Oli never learns from his previous same mistakes .. ?? serves him right
It has become a fashion to blame others for own misdeeds. He has failed to learn from the sayings “you reap what you sow” and the boot is on the other leg.
Even for minor issues like a stomach upset, this cartoon PM is obsessed with blaming India.
Nepal is getting sucked into the China debt trap.
Oli went against wishes of Nepalese..How can he destroy deep rooted relation between Nepal and India?
