The UML has decided to ask for the prime minister's resignation in the forthcoming session of parliament. They have accused the PM of being inefficient and say that corruption, instead of being curtailed, is increasing daily. Discussion of the Lauda Air issue features prominently in the UML's plan of action. The UML had asked for the PM's resignation late last month, and immediately after that, on 29 January, the PM spoke over the phone with UML leader KP Oli. The conversation lasted at the most five minutes. Immediately after this conversation, at around 9pm, the PM sent his secretary, Gokarna Poudel, to meet Oli at his place. Gokarna went to meet Oli in a car with private plates. As soon as Madhav Kumar Nepal got wind of this conversation and Gokarna's visit to Oli, he rushed back to the capital from Bara, the very next day. Unfortunately, Nepal could only reach Kathmandu the following day.
