Nepal Prime Minister K P Sharma Oli has alleged that India is conspiring with his political rivals to overthrow him, the Press Trust of India reported.
“Efforts are being made to remove me from power, but that will not succeed,” Oli said during an official gathering on Sunday.
“I have smelt undercurrent movements. There have been various kinds of activities in the embassies and hotels. If you listen to the news media from Delhi, you will get the gesture,” a report in Scroll.in quoted Oli as saying. The Nepali PM’s remarks come over a week after the country approved a bill to redraw its map demarcating the Lipulekh mountain pass, Kalapani and Limpiyadhura — the area at the centre of the dispute between India and Nepal — under its territory.
“You all must know Nepal’s nationalism is not that weak that outside forces will be able to topple it,” The Indian Express quoted the Nepali PM as saying.“We have changed our map and if the prime minister of the country is deposed, then that will be unthinkable to Nepal,” The Hindu quoted PM Oli as saying.
