DANG — Former Prime Minister and senior UML leader Madav Kumar Nepal has warned India not meddle in its internal issues saying that Nepal won’t bow down to India and do all that it tells.
Talking in an exchange greeting program for Tihar and Chhath organised by CPN-UML Dang chapter on Saturday morning, Nepal questioned, “Why should India order Nepal?” “India may be a big country but when it comes to sovereignty, all countries are equal,” he said.
He said that the people of Nepal understand that India has solely imposed blockade to Nepal though it has been denying saying so, may be it is being afraid.
“India is imposing so as to attempt to rebuff us blockade for promulgating constitution. All Nepalis should stand together against India’s crooked conduct,” leader Nepal slammed India.
He said that there are no protests in other Nepal-India border points with the exception of Birgunj but India does not permit vehicles to enter into Nepal from those operational points too. “If that this is not blockade from Indian-side, what is this” he grilled.
Indicating the protests in Southern plain of the country, he denounced Madhes-based leaders for moving to Indian tunes. “The new constitution has ensured equal rights to all communities. Protests will be clear if they read the constitution instead of showcasing drama along the no-man’s land,” he added.
He also stressed on long term trade relations with China to break India’s monopoly on Nepal.Follow @gorkhapost
