As registration pressure mounts, Nepal Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli on Saturday claimed that a conspiracy was being hatched against him and President Bidhya Devi Bhandari and asked his supporters to be prepared for any eventuality. In a meeting with ministers, he said that the party's unity was at stake and this may take some forceful decisions. 

"The party's unity is at stake. Anything can happen, be prepared. Plots are being hatched against me and the President, this might result in me taking forceful decisions. So you all now need to clear your stance and be prepared," the Nepalese said.

Nepal's ruling Communist Party has demanded Oli's resignation after his comments against India. Oli had accused New Delhi of trying to dislodge him from power after he brought a new political map of Nepal, which included Indian territories.

Speaking at an event, PM Oli had alleged that his rivals were trying to remove him from power because he brought the new map of Nepal that had upset the country's giant neighbour. His remarks, however, backfired and created a massive controversy in the country, with the ruling party demanding his resignation.

His rival in the ruling party's 44-member standing committee, Pushpa Kamal Dahal, along with several other leaders sought his removal, saying that he failed to deliver on his governance promises and his accusation against India was a diversion tactic.
