PM OLI TO HOLD CABINET MEETING THROUGH VIDEO CONFERENCE
KATHMANDU, Aug 22: Nepal Communist Party (NCP) Chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ will convene the party meetings in the absence of Prime Minister and another chair K P Oli.
Chair and PM Oli authorized Dahal to summon secretariat meeting as he re-visits Singapore on medical trip today afternoon. According to PMO sources, the prime minister will stay in Singapore for around 10 days.
The 67-years-old prime minister had been to Singapore on August 3 for medical check-up and returned home on August 12 after getting his medical tests done at the National University Hospital.
However, after showing signs of initial improvements he fell ill again due to the side effects of the new medicine the Singaporean doctors prescribed him for enhancing kidney function, according to sources.
PM Oli had undergone a kidney transplant surgery at the Apollo Hospital in New Delhi in 2007 and is on kidney enhancement drug therapy.
Meanwhile, a cabinet meeting held on Wednesday has made necessary amendments to the Cabinet Meeting Operation Regulations paving way for the prime minister to hold cabinet meeting through video conference while he remains away from home.
