The political crisis continues with Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli meeting in Nepal with BD Bhandari, to discuss the implementation of a health emergency in the country to prevent the spread of Covid-19 infection in the Himalayan nation. The declaration of a health emergency would also provide relief to the Prime Minister, who is facing staunch opposition within his own party to a lost-party foreign policy.
According to sources, President Bhandari was irresponsible towards enforcing the health emergency. Instead the PM asked to ensure that political differences between leaders are decided through discussion. The powerful Nepalese Army is also not in favor of deploying troops for health emergencies.
While PM Oli is scheduled to meet with the Nepali Communist Party co-chairman PK Dahal today to resolve political differences, the former has made it clear that he will not put it under his circumstances under any circumstances even if this party Be for division of. The two NCP presidents held discussions for over two hours yesterday, but without any result. A meeting of the party’s standing committee is scheduled for tomorrow against PM Oli with the majority members, but the passing of any resolution requires the signatures of both Ollie and Dahl. If the motion passes the standing committee, it goes to the central committee, where again PM Oli supporters are in the minority.
While the “Galla (war chest) and Gaddi (power)” game is going on in Kathmandu, joining the fire is China’s Ambassador to Nepal Hou Yankee, who is pressuring NCP leaders to put their position on their side Resolve differences In a meeting with Ho, one of the most senior NCP leaders asked him whether the Chinese Communist Party would allow a disagreement against PM Oli in the party boil or would lead to action. He made it clear that NCP will remain strong even without PM Oli.
Ho’s actions in Kathmandu, which are beyond the diplomatic brief, have invited severe criticism in the Nepalese independent media as it clearly reflected the depth of Chinese penetration in the Himalayan Empire. Even though the NCP party declares to follow Mao’s ideology in the past, most of their leaders are democratic at heart and strongly believe in Hindu customs.
The reason is the Chinese power game in Kathmandu and the political ambitions of PM Oli, the political crisis will continue in Nepal. It is the loss of non-spreading power of coronovirus which is now the main concern of PM Oli.
