Meetings organized in India to topple my government, alleges Nepal PM K P Sharma Oli
New Delhi/IBNS: Amid heightened tensions between the two nations in recent times, Nepal PM K P Sharma Oli on Sunday alleged that meetings are being organized in India to topple his government.
Oli said the ouster plan will fail.
“Plots are being hatched to topple me for releasing the country’s new map and getting it adopted through Parliament,” said Oli on Sunday while addressing a function organised by the Madan Bhandari Foundation at Baluwatar to commemorate the leader’s 69th birth anniversary as quoted by The Kathmandu Post.
“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 said.
The House of Representatives of Nepal this month passed the Constitutional Amendment Bill revising the Coat of Arms of Nepal which has included a stretch of land in the mountains that India claims as its own.
Out of the 275 members of Nepal's House of Representatives, 258 votes went in favour of the amendment bill, which was passed by a two-thirds majority.
The new map of Nepal includes a portion of land on the east of river Kali, which extends out from the northwestern tip of Nepal.
The area includes the Lipulekh Pass in Uttarakhand and also Limpiyadhura and Kalapani, which are strategically significant areas for India and the country has been guarding since the 1962 war with China.
