Nepalese President Vidya Devi Bhandari and PM KP Sharma Oli to increase the difficulty
The Nepalese Congress, the opposition party in Nepal, said on Saturday it would use political and legal action against President Vidya Devi Bhandari’s decision to dissolve parliament.

Deuba urged all political parties to unite against the president’s decision, that all democratic forces should come together and take political and legal action to protect the constitution and democracy.
