In the midst of the ongoing political crisis in Nepal, Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli called a meeting of the Constitutional Council on Wednesday at 11 a.m.
The meeting comes after students protesting against the dissolution of parliament clashed with police near the Nepalese Bundestag in Kathmandu on Monday.
The students affiliated with the Communist Party of Nepal (NCP) had quarreled with the police when they tried to organize a flash mob in front of the parliament in Kathmandu.
Previously, three former Nepalese Prime Ministers, Pushpa Kamal Dahal, Madhav Kumar Nepal and Jhalanath Khanal, took part in a protest in Maitighar, Kathmandu, against the dissolution of parliament on Sunday.
Dahal and Madhav Kumar Nepal were also Chairs of the NCP, which practically split up after the current caretaker PM Oli dissolved parliament on December 20th last year.
The Nepalese President, Bidya Devi Bhandari, dissolved the House of Commons on the recommendation of Oli on December 20th. After the dissolution of Parliament, the Prime Minister also proposed elections on April 30 and May 10, 2021.
“We will continue our protests and demonstrations until the House of Representatives is reinstated. We will continue this fight forever. We will organize sit-in protests, mass rallies, mass gatherings and public gatherings. This is an expression of public opinion, their voices and it would go on, “Jhalanath Khanal, former Nepalese Prime Minister, had told ANI.
