Oli, however, said that even though the game to remove him from power has started in the country, will be impossible to succeed in its plan. Nepal PM KP Sharma Oli claimed that meetings were underway to remove him at a hotel in Kathmandu and an “embassy is also active in it”. FYI, he is pointing to India.

In a statement, Oli claimed that meetings are being held at a hotel in Kathmandu and an embassy is also active in it. He said this in an indirect reference to India. PM Oli has claimed that conspiracies were being plotted against him since the constitutional amendment showing Indian land in Nepali map.

There is an open race to remove me from the post. Nepal’s nationality is not weak. No one thought that a prime minister would be removed from office for printing a map,” KP Sharma Oli said. The Nepal Parliament had on June 13 cleared the Bill to include three territories of India in its latest political map featuring Lipulekh, Kalapani and Limpiyadhura.

However, India did not accept the new political map of Nepal and said the artificial enlargement of claims is not based on any evidence.

MEA spokesperson Anurag Srivastava said that India had already made its position clear on the matter, stressing that it was violative of the current agreement between the two countries of holding talks on outstanding boundary issues.
