A high-level meeting between the Nepali Congress and the CPN (UML) – which has fuelled speculation that the days of the government led by Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ are numbered – has been held at the residence of former Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli to discuss the current political situation in the country.

Kathmandu: A high-level meeting between Nepal’s two largest parties – the Nepali Congress and the CPN (UML) – has fueled speculations that the days of the government led by Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ are numbered. Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba on Saturday visited the residence of Communist Party of Nepal-Unified Marxist Leninist (CPN-UML) chairman and former Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, who is part of the current coalition government, to discuss the current political situation in the country.

The details of the closed-door meeting have not been made public, but there is speculation in political circles that the two leaders discussed the formation of a new coalition government, possibly to remove Prachanda. Oli, who is eyeing the prime minister’s post once again, was unhappy with the government’s recent budget allocation for the financial year 2024-25, which he spoke about publicly. However, sources close to Prime Minister Prachanda have dismissed “rumors of change in power” and said that the two top leaders of the ruling coalition, CPN-Maoist Center Chairman Prachanda and CPN-UML Chairman Oli, are determined to continue the current coalition for a full term.

Prime Minister’s press advisor Govinda Acharya claimed that Prachanda and Oli held two meetings at the Prime Minister’s Office on Sunday and Monday, during which the two leaders discussed the latest political situation and ways to strengthen the current coalition government. He said, “There is no truth in the claims of change in the current coalition government and formation of a new coalition.
