CPN-UML Chairman Oli returnsCPN-UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli, who was admitted to the Singapore-based National University Hospital last week after suffering from fungal infections on his right arm, returned to Kathmandu
According to Oli’s close aides, he decided to return home after his doctors told him that there were no immediate chances of critical complications to his health, and that he could return home.
“The doctors have assured that the swelling of his hand will be cured after a short while,” said Oli’s Personal Secretary Ramesh Acharya.
For the most part of the last six months, Oli has spent most of his time in hospitals, owing to his kidney ailment and other health complications.
Soon after he was discharged from a hospital in New Delhi, India, following a successful kidney transplant surgery, Oli was diagnosed with meningitis and airlifted to Bangkok in Thailand on April 30.
He was treated at Bumrungrad Hospital in the Thai capital for about a month before returning home. Upon his return, Oli contested for the UML chairperson’s position in the party’s ninth national congress and won.
The UML chief was once again taken ill with fungal infections on his right arm, and had to fly to Singapore for treatment.
Rajan Bhattarai, a UML leader, said Oli is still under the medication prescribed by the doctors at the Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital.
‘Re-endorse prez, veep’
CPN-UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli has called for the re-endorsement of incumbent President Ram Baran Yadav and Vice-president Paramananda Jha through the Constituent Assembly in accordance with the seven-point agreement. Oli reiterated his party’s position while talking to the media at the Tribhuvan International Airport upon his arrival from Singapore on Tuesday. Before electing Nepali Congress President Sushil Koirala to the prime ministerial post, the UML had reached an agreement with the NC on re-endorsing both president and vice-president through the CA.
