Members of Nepal Prime Minister Oli’s party are not happy with his move to blame India for the mess he has created for himself
Bengaluru: The move by Nepal Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli to usurp Indian territories of Lipulekh, Kalapani and Limpiyadhura by amending its constitution may have pleased China, but the members of Oli’s own party are aggrieved, vexed and incensed.
Reports add that they are not happy with the way Oli has treated India and want his resignation.

A crucial meeting of ruling party NCP’s Standing Committee is scheduled on July 6 to decide the fate of KP Oli.
The members are of the opinion that Oli’s remarks against Modi are “neither politically correct nor diplomatically appropriate.”
“The Prime Minister’s remarks that India was conspiring to remove him were neither politically correct nor diplomatically appropriate,” party’s executive chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal said.
A landlocked country that Nepal is, it is entirely dependent on India for the essentials.
But if Nepal has acted in haste, that too, prodded by China on the fanciful premise that China would be an alternative to India, it is nothing else but rank foolishness.
This confession was made by none other than a Nepali economist Dr Posh Raj Pandey a few weeks ago.
In this regard, he said, "Nepal is not only a landlocked country, but also India locked as it is surrounded by India from the three sides. The situation will be vulnerable. If India retaliates, it will have a huge economic impact on the country.”
He further said in this regard, "Nepal-India relations should not be allowed to damage and there is a need for early negotiations and a dialogue to resolve the issue at the earliest".
Reports are now trickling in that China has occupied a village of Nepal and allegedly removed the boundary pillars to legitimise its annexation, top government sources say.
The latest in the line is Rui village in Gorkha district, which is now in total control of China. "In a massive departure from its diplomatic stand of non-interference, the Chinese have completely occupied Rui Village and the residents comprising around 72 houses are fighting for their original identity. This also shows how Nepal's current regime has surrendered to China and is now making anti-India statements and resorting to anti-India activities.”
