As differences worsen between the two chairpersons of the ruling Nepal Communist Party, Prime Minister K P Sharma Oli and Pushpa Kamal Dahal, the former alleged Sunday that his rivals were being instigated by India to topple him.

Speaking at a programme, Oli alleged that “meetings” were being organised in Delhi against Nepal’s decision to amend its Constitution to include in its map Kalapani, Lipulekh and Limpiyadhura areas.

“It is unthinkable… the things that are happening in Delhi against the amendment to the Constitution… Listen to the Delhi media. Look at the meetings being organised in India,” said Oli, referring to an alleged “plot” to overthrow his government. “You all must know Nepal’s nationalism is not that weak that outside forces will be able to topple it…” he said.
