KATHMANDU, July 13 - Nepal�s Opposition parties today tabled a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister K P Oli after the embattled leader refused to resign despite his coalition government being reduced to a minority, plunging the country into fresh political instability.
CPN (Maoist Centre), Nepali Congress and CPN-United tabled the no-confidence motion to oust Oli a day after Prachanda�s Maoist party withdrew support to the nine-month-old CPN-UML-led coalition government and claimed that he will form the new government with the backing of the opposition.
Prachanda proposed the motion while Nepali Congress president Sher Bahadur Deuba seconded it.
NC leader Ram Krishna Yadav said the motion was filed after 183 NC parliamentarians, 70 from Maoist and three of CPN-United put their signatures in the 601-member Constituent Assembly, Kathmandu Post reported. � PTI
