Kathmandu: Under mounting pressure to resign, Nepal ''s beleaguered Prime Minister K P Sharma Oli has downplayed the intra party rift and said such disputes are "regular phenomena " that can be resolved through dialogue, as a crucial meeting of the ruling party was postponed by a week to give more time to the warring factions to reach a power sharing deal. Prime Minister Oli also vowed to protect Nepal ''s sovereignty and territorial integrity, amidst a border row with India. Top NCP leaders, including former prime minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal #8216;Prachanda ', have demanded Prime Minister Oli ''s resignation, saying his recent anti India remarks were "neither politically correct nor diplomatically appropriate. " But in his prime time address, Oli tried to downplay the intra party rift and growing demand for his resignation. "It is natural for the people to wonder why parties are indulging in dispute while the country is beset by a pandemic and natural disasters, said Oli. "Such disputes are regular phenomena that can be resolved through discussion and dialogue, " he added. "I will assure all that I will make every effort to consolidate national unity, protect democratic republic and uplift national pride. " Amidst a border row with India, the prime minister said, "I will also also commit myself to protect national sovereignty and territorial integrity. " The differences between the two factions of the NCP, one led by Oli and the other led by party ''s executive chairman #8216;Prachanda ' on the issue of power sharing, intensified after the prime minister unilaterally decided to prorogue the budget session of Parliament. The political future of Oli is now expected to be decided on July 17 during the Standing Committee meeting, amidst the growing involvement of Chinese ambassador to Nepal Hou Yanqui to save his chair. The Prachanda faction, backed by senior leaders and former prime ministers Madhav Kumar Nepal and Jhalanath Khanal, has been demanding Oli ''s resignation. (PTI)

When the film awards season came around in early 2012, Gulshan Devaiah found himself surprisingly ill at ease. The new actor s performance in his 2011 releases That Girl in Yellow Boots, Dum Maaro Dum and Shaitan had, after all, made him a contender for a best debutant award. But at high profile gatherings, out of the protective shadow of the characters he played, he would be nervous and sweating buckets . He found himself squirming during the nomination parties; he was awkward on the red carpet and terrible at small talk. When the party later moved to Shah Rukh Khan s seaside bungalow, he could barely muster courage to chat with the famous host. All I wanted to do was go home, says the actor.READ MORE
After working in Atlanta for the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (US CDC) I moved back to Pakistan to set up a US CDC and Government of Pakistan collaborative programme, Pakistan Field Epidemiology and Laboratory Training Program (FELTP). FELTP offices were set up at the Pakistan Institute of Health (NIH). For the next 12 years, I was able to learn about its history, founders and challenges. I was awe struck with its founder ''s grand vision as it aligned very much close to US CDC ''s. They envisioned it to be a top health institute of not only Pakistan but of the region. In the 60s, when NIH was founded, no one wanted to live in Islamabad. And Chak Shahzad where NIH is located was a jungle away from Islamabad. Founders built housing facilities for its employees, a small market, and arranged transport for the employee ''s children to go to school. Then the best scientific minds were selected from across Pakistan and NIH reached its zenith. In scientific journals of the past era you will find references from NIH.The National Agriculture and Research Council (NARC) has the same history. In the coming years, successive governments lost interest in both NIH and NARC. In one instance a fully qualified professional was kept as an ”acting ” Executive Director of NIH for over six years. That showed the governments ' non serious attitude to a critical Pakistani institute. But both NIH and NARC have a curse. They also own hundreds of acres of land for their future expansions as was envisioned by their founders but is now valued in billions.
