Nepal’s Prime Minister, K P Sharma Oli, came under fresh attack from three former Prime Ministers and his own party leaders for meeting Indian R-AW chief, Samant Kumar Goel, without keeping them in the loop, reported Indian Express.

Calling it “improper” and “objectionable”, former Prime Ministers Pushpa Kamal Dahal Prachanda, who is also executive chairman of the ruling Nepal Communist Party, Jhalanath Khanal and Madhav Kumar Nepal, former Deputy Prime Ministers Bhim Bahadur Rawal and Narayan Kaji Shrestha held separate group meetings, and some took to social media to criticise Mr. Oli, reported the newspaper.

They asked him to provide details of the meeting with the R-AW chief that lasted more than two hours, almost till midnight Wednesday.

The R-AW chief’s visit, ahead of Indian Army chief General M M Naravane’s scheduled visit next month, comes at a time when India and Nepal are attempting to repair ties, severely strained following escalation of the boundary dispute and Nepal’s publication of a map this summer to include areas of the Indian state of Uttarakhand.

“Such a meeting, keeping the party and the ministry concerned in absolute dark, calls for an explanation from the Prime Minister,” Prachanda told a gathering that included two ministers.
