Student union of ruling NCP rival faction burns effigy of caretaker PM Oli

A student union of the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP)'s rival faction led by Pushpa Kamal Dahal and Madhav Kumar Nepal on Thursday burnt the effigy of caretaker Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli as a mark of protest against PM's decision to dissolve the parliament.

The rival faction of 'All Nepal National Free Students Union' (ANNFSU) of the ruling Nepal Communist Party burnt an effigy of Oli at various locations in the capital city of Kathmandu as their second phase of protest plan.

The protestors chanted slogans against Oli demanding the reinstatement of the Parliament.

Nepal President Bidhya Devi Bhandari on 20th December ratified the recommendation of Oli to dissolve the Parliament after a rising rift inside the ruling Nepal Communist Party.

Hearing over a dozen petitions filed against Oli's move began this week which is expected to run for weeks.

A total of 121 priests of Bhagwat Ashram and Pashupati are performing pooja. The decision of the government to replace the base of the Shiva Linga with a gold filling came into controversy as historians claimed that it is against historical and religious values. Many activists protested the plan to replace the ancient silver base with gold. Two writ petitions were also filed in the Supreme Court on Monday against the government's decision to install golden Jalahari at the Pashupatinath Temple.
