Kathmandu: After changing the dramatic political equation in Nepal, Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal has won the vote of confidence in Parliament today. Pushpa Kamal Dahal Prachanda, who became the Prime Minister with the support of the Nepal Communist Party UML, won the vote of confidence with a huge majority today with the support of other parties including the opposition Nepali Congress.
