By Dr.  S.Chandrasekharan.
In dealing with the border crisis with India on the Kalapani area and the inauguration of the link road to Lipulekh, one analyst described it as a “full display of his (Oli’s) characteristic and outrageous bluster.”  Again quoting the analyst, Oli did try his best to cash in on an anti Indian posturing that is highly popular among the jingoists in Nepal.
