Chinese Meddling In Nepal’s Party Politics Continues As Crisis Deepens

Nepal Prime Minister K.P. Sharma Oli

Kathmandu: At a time when the political crisis inside Nepal’s ruling Communist Party deepens, Chinese Ambassador to Nepal Hou Yanqi met top political leadership in Nepal and pressed them to remain united while communicating the message from Beijing.

The power struggle inside the ruling party deepens in Nepal after party Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal aka Prachanda presented a 19-pages long political report in the party Secretariat meeting on Friday accusing another party Chair and Prime Minister K P Sharma Oli for creating a mess in the party and the government.

Political analysts have raised concerns over repeated Chinese meddling in Nepal politics.

Prachanda, in his political document accused Oli for ignoring the party’s decision, failed to lead the government and the party, promoting nepotism in the government and corruption.

To discuss the internal crisis, Prachanda as the party Chair, called a party Secretariat meeting on Wednesday but Oli refused to participate in the meeting demanding withdrawal of Prachanda’s political report.

The nine-member Secretariat is the most powerful body inside the ruling party where Oli is in minority with four members supporting him.
