L-R: Sher Bahadur Deuba and KP Sharma Oli

Kathmandu, August 22

Nepal’s main opposition leader KP Sharma Oli has urged Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba to hold talks with India and request the southern neighbour to remove various dams in southern Nepal, which he claims were built against international laws and without the consent of Nepal.

Addressing the Parliament meeting a day before PM Deuba is embarking on his first foreign trip to New Delhi after his election to the premiership in July, the CPN-UML Chairman and former prime minister today also complained that PM Deuba did not consult opposition parties while finalising agendas of the trip.

The Prime Minister even did not give any information to the House, Oli criticised the government claiming it could not answer queries of public about what the government was doing to end problems of floods and inundations as witnessed in Terai region last week.
