Nepal Prime Minister Khadga Prasad Sharma Oli meets Chinese Premier Li Keqiang after a welcoming ceremony at the Great Hall of the People in BeijingBy Gopal Sharma KATHMANDU (Reuters) - Nepal plunged into a new political crisis on Wednesday after the main Maoist party that props up the ruling coalition said it would form a new government, leaving Prime Minister K.P. Oli isolated and at imminent risk of losing power. Oli, 64, rose to power with the backing of the Maoists last October after promising to resolve protests against a new constitution by southern plains dwellers and to step up efforts to rebuild homes destroyed by last year's massive earthquakes. Increasing public anger at Oli has led the Maoists - who waged a decade-long insurgency before joining mainstream politics in 2006 - to conclude that he was an obstacle to ending the Himalayan nation's constitutional standoff.
