In a statement, Oli claimed that meetings are being held at a hotel in Kathmandu and an embassy is also active in it. He said this in an indirect reference to India.
Accusing India of trying to destabilise his government, Oli has alleged the Indian Embassy in Nepal was conspiring the same.
He further added that the conspiracies are being hatched against him after the Constitutional Amendment Bill was passed in the Parliament claiming three area of Indian territory.
The Nepal Parliament had on June 13 cleared the Bill to include three territories of India in its latest political map featuring Lipulekh, Kalapani and Limpiyadhura.
However, India did not accept the new political map of Nepal and said the artificial enlargement of claims is not based on any evidence.
MEA spokesperson Anurag Srivastava said that India had already made its position clear on the matter, stressing that it was violative of the current agreement between the two countries of holding talks on outstanding boundary issues.
