Nepal: PM Oli under Siege: Update No. 334

Note No. 767                                     Dated 09-Jun-2016

By Dr. S.Chandrasekharan

PM Oli who had hopes to continue as the Prime Minister till the next General election in Jan or Feb 2018 is facing many problems and it is not certain whether he would continue for long.  His own party leadership as well as his coalition partners are against him and he is being accused of having failed to resolve all the outstanding problems.

Bhutan: Kuensel’s Year Ender; An Objective Appraisal: Update No. 115

Note No. 763                                                  Dated 15-Apr-2016

After every year, Kuensel the semi official newspaper from Bhutan, comes out with a study and analysis of events of the past year in that country.

Though the articles in the “year ender” may seem excessively adulatory, it has over the years earned a reputation of being fairly objective. Where criticism is due, the paper has not spared.

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan     

Prime Minister Oli finally condescended to make an official six days visit to India from 19th February.  Despite some advice from his close friends to visit China first and thus give a message to India, he chose to wait for the supposed “blockade” to be withdrawn before he could visit Delhi.  There is an impression current in the valley that he has done India a “favour.”
