Amid various speculations over the ongoing political deadlock in the country, Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has called an emergency cabinet meeting overlapping the schedule of the Secretariat meeting on Wednesday.
The meeting has been called without consultation with the disgruntled Dahal- Nepal faction, hinting that Prime Minister Oli wants to move ahead unilaterally without following the party decision.
A highly-placed source said, Prime Minister has called the cabinet meeting at 1 pm today. The SC meeting had has been scheduled for the same time.
Since the emergency cabinet meeting was called following the midnight Tuesday meeting with President Bidhya Devi Bhandari, it has been speculated that it might dwell on an ordinance to split the party and cabinet reformation.
