Kathmandu, December 20
Four ministers, including one from the KP Sharma Oli-led camp in the ruling party’s division, had objected to Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli’s proposal about dissolving the House of Representatives during the cabinet meeting on Sunday morning.
Oli, however, listened to none of them and left the meeting after making his statement, sources say.
The first to protest Oli’s proposal was Agriculture Minister Ghana Shyam Bhusal. He said dissolving the House would be suicidal for the party, and a betrayal to the Nepali communist movement.
Seconding him, Tourism Minister Yogesh Bhattarai suggested the prime minister should instead expedite dialogues inside the party to solve the current problem. Barsha Man Pun also spoken in the same line.
Even Foreign Affairs Minister Pradeep Gyawali, who is considered loyal to Oli, also warned that the dissolution of the House would lead the country towards a constitutional and political crisis.
After the four ministers spoke, Oli said “alright” and left the hall.
