Earlier on Friday, the rival faction leaders of the NCP had threatened to expel Oli’s membership from the party as they took to the streets for the second time in less than a month to protest against his decision to dissolve the Parliament on December 20 last year, calling for fresh elections for April and May this year amid the political unrest in the country.
