KP Sharma Oli insults President swearing in as PM, case reaches supreme court

In Nepal, KP Sharma Oli has been embroiled in controversy over insulting the President amid his oath as PM. Four writ petitions were filed in the Supreme Court on Monday demanding that PM K P Sharma oli be sworn in again. The petitions said Oli insulted the presidency by not repeating all the words spoken in the middle of the swearing-in ceremony.

President Vidya Devi Bhandari had administered the oath of office and secrecy to Oli as PM at a function held at Rashtrapati Bhavan Sheetal Niwas on Friday. In the midst of the swearing-in ceremony, when the President spoke "in the name of God" in addition to the word "oath", Oli, the 69-year-old president of the Communist Party of Nepal (UML), dropped those words. When President Bhandari mentioned "God, country and people", Oli, who became the PM of Nepal for the third time, said, "I will take oath in the name of the country and the people. ''

Let us tell you that all the four writ petitioners have appealed that Oli should take oath of office and secrecy once again as the oath taken on Friday was illegal. Senior advocate Chandrakanta Gyavali and advocates Lokendra Oli and Kesar Jung Kc have filed a joint writ petition while advocates Raj Kumar Suwal, Santosh Bhandari and Navraj Adhikari have filed separate writ petitions on the same issue. The petitioners have reportedly appealed to the court to direct Oli to take oath again.
