KATHMANDU, Dec 8: Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has called an all-party meeting to discuss current political issues. PM Oli has convened a meeting of the political parties represented in the parliament to discuss the latest political happenings in the country. “The meeting is scheduled to be held at the PM's residence in Baluwatar at 11AM today,” said Surya Thapa, press adviser to the prime minister.
PM Oli has called an all-party meeting after massive protests demanding restoration of monarchy were held across the country. Demonstrations in support of former king Gyanendra have started in different parts of the country. Slogans have been chanted in favor of the monarchy and the Hindu nation in various parts of the country, including the Kathmandu Valley. The Nepal Communist Party, the ruling party, has accused the government of patronizing such activities.
At the NCP Standing Committee meeting, Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal had earlier said that an all-party meeting should be held to discuss the issue.
