Despite Nepal’s pact with China, India is still its lifeline
NEW DELHI: An avowedly India-sceptic Prime Minister of Nepal, K P Sharma Oli, will make New Delhi his first destination on February 19 after declaring he would not visit India until the blockade at Birgunj was lifted. A bruising impasse between the Kathmandu “pahad” elite and Terai “Madhesi” has compelled the Oli government to amend the new Constitution to incorporate some of the demands of the protesters.
Few weeks ago, the blockade was lifted and trucks from India finally crossed over into Nepal through the Raxaul-Birgunj border after 135 days. Oli’s visit this week signals India’s desire to move on, though New Delhi believes it has “gained ground” in Nepal, contrary to the criticism in recent months that India had ceded ground to China in Nepal.
PM Modi, thank you for standing strong to protect India’s and Madhesis interests! At the same time we want Nepal to prosper. But these Communists should be shown the proper place! Finally they are realizing and things will move forward and hopefully a better Government will take shape in Nepal!
but nepalese on the other hand, especially the pahadi’s have so much of hatred for us. FYI, I am currently living in Nepal.
If they have hatred it is because they are jealous of us! One more earthquake they will look to India! I do not want wish them though! We will always there for them! They do not have anything common with China
Jealous of what? Indian corruption. In that case, so is every India’s neighbor. Nepal is successfully playing between India and China and when Nepal is run over by China, King of Nepal will get India’s asylum like high holiness did.
I know there is corruption but is that all India have? Indians wish Nepal should prosper Nepalese should also wish the same for us…we don’t want to twist their arm and grab their land live and let live
everyone hates us …. because we’re not worthy of being loved
Modiji in all respects is the best P.M of India
For 70 years Indians were insulted in Nepal.Modi govt has made them realise their place.
The india played dangerous game in sri lanka by supporting tamil hindu terrorists against peaceful buddhists, Now same goes with the Madhesis who are indian origin hindu terrorists and holding nepal government for ransom.
