Nepal Oli’s Survival Mantra

There is no dull moment in Nepal politics these days.

Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli's faction is in a minority in the 44-member committee. And he was cornered with demands for his resignation – as the co-chair of the party or as Prime Minister. Pump primed by survival instincts, Oli did what most elected leaders love to do - namely duck parliament for immediate reprieve.
