KATHMANDU: Amid a blockade of trade points between India and Nepal by agitating Madhesi parties, China is mulling providing 1,000 metric tonnes of fuel to help the landlocked country tide over an acute shortage of petroleum products during the festival season.
The first shipment is expected to arrive in the Nepalese capital Kathmandu in a few days, said sources at state-owned Nepal Oil Corporation (NOC).
Nepal's new government has mobilized various agencies to bring fuel and cooking gas from China in the wake of shortage of essential goods during festivals due to the Madhesi-led agitation in the southern plains.
well planned chinese tactics
In fact China is waiting for this chance to enter in to Nepal, and very soon the Nepal will be the puppet in the hands of China, having Maoist backed PM the counry will be bucklig under pressure from China will be asked to follow their instructions, and slowly China will take a total control of Nepal as well to put a pressure on India

Nepal is a sovereign country and has every right to decide on it's own. Nepalese were never closer or in friendly terms with us. By heart they are anti Indians and hate us like anything. Lets forget them.
Its good for people of Nepal not to depend on any one country like Past. Nepal is democratic country, they can choose whom to do business. India should improve their Foreign affairs. I assume India is doing the same mistake as it is in Srilanka. Stop worrying about Nepal. Lets concentrate on India & develop india.
I'm not sure why my friends in India are complaining so much. If we're falling in China's "trap", it's our problem. Ask your government to seal the Nepal-India borders and implement passport/visa system if it's so concerned about its security. Simple!
We'd rather be the next Tibet than to lick the big bully India's boot! It's that simple. Again, stop worrying about us. Cheers! :)
China is also mulling to extend Qinghai-Tibet Railway upto Kathmandu - giving Nepal all weather railway connectivity to Beijing and Shanghai.
we nepalese are not scared of india,we spit on india.india wants to occupy nepal and merge in it,we will foil indian nefarious desigins.india has bad relationship with every neighbouring countries.SAARC nations should throw out india from SAARC conference
China is indeed true friend of Nepal; India has proven to be not.

Nepali is getting petroleum products from china because India has blocked it near the border.India has intentionally blocked it because Modi supports Madhesi parties.
Nepal is now a very close ally of China. Sri Lanka will soon become one as well. Bangladesh will follow after fall of Zia government.
Indian govts arrogance is going to cost us big time.. its thumbs down to modis foreign affairs ministe
