Former prime minister and Nepali Congress president, Girija Prasad Koirala, has been admitted to Sahid Gangalal Heart Centre on Sunday evening after his health condition deteriorated. Doctors said the haemoglobin count on his blood had dropped and a blood transfusion was necessary. Koirala is suffering from chronic bronchitis.

Meanwhile, Nepali Congress leaders were gathered at the parliamentary party office to discuss a strategy if the Maoists propose a vote of no-confidence in the parliament. According The Kathmandu Post:

The UCPN (Maoist) has begun homework for the formation of a national unity government under its leadership. It has started discussions within the party to bring a no-confidence motion against the government by calling a special session of  Legislature-Parliament.

“The party will discuss the matter further on Sunday. We might have to go for a no-trust motion as the UML and NC have forwarded conditions for the change of guard,” said Shakti Basnet, politburo member.

The party has also asked all its legislators to return the capital within a couple of days.

And, UNMIN Chief Karen Landgren met with the leaders of the three big political parties today to discuss the Mission’s role in the peace process. Kantipur writes:

The United Nations Mission in Nepal (UNMIN), which has been drawing flaks from the ruling parties over its denial to divulge the details of Maoist combatants, on Sunday held discussions with the three major parties—UCPN (Maoist), Nepali Congress (NC) and CPN-UML.

NC leader Krishna Sitaula, who was also present in the meeting, said UNMIN Chief Karin Landgren wanted to know about the political parties’ stance on UNMIN’s role in the peace process.

Likewise, Maoist leader Krishna Bahadur Mahara said that the political parties did not express their dissatisfaction over UNMIN’s role in the meeting.
