KATHMANDU — The main opposition party, Nepali Congress, today at the parliamentary meeting expressed concern that the government has recalled Nepali Ambassador to India.
NC lawmaker, Dr Prakash Sharan Mahat, said the government’s decision to recall Nepali Ambassador to India, Deep Kumar Upadhyay, was wrong.
Mahat asked the government to clarify the reasons it presented to recall the ambassador.
He said the government had accused the ambassador of engaging to change the government. He added that the subject relating to the change of government was related to the sovereign parliament and that it was fully wrong to internationalize the issue by linking it up with an ambassador.
Mahat further drew the attention of the government towards the impact such irresponsible, immature and vengeful decision; a subject of minor issue being internationalized would have on the relations between the two countries.
He also drew the government’s attention towards a fracas emanating in the national and international communities in relation to the Ncell.
Lawmaker Mahat said that government should make it clear why it was promoting the trend of evading tax without fulfilling the state’s responsibility.
