Kathmandu, Jan 24 (PTI) Prime Minister K P Sharma Oli was expelled from the primary membership of the Nepal Communist Party by the splinter faction led by Pushpa Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda' on Sunday for alleged anti-party activities, further intensifying the infighting within the ruling party.

The decision was taken at the Standing Committee meeting of the faction led by former prime ministers Prachanda and Madhav Kumar Nepal in Parisdanda in Koteshwor after Oli failed to give explanation to his recent moves as sought by party leadership, said Ganesh Shah, a senior standing committee member of the party.
