New Delhi: Senior BJP leader Vijay Jolly in a press statement from New Delhi stated “We hold Nepali Sovereignty as Paramount” but term anti- India protests in Nepal as unfortunate & misplaced.
Promulgation of new constitution is an internal affair of Nepal. But India has always supported “Consensus Approach” in Nepal. Sampurana Loktantra in Nepal is welcome while taking onboard all the marginalized sections.
India has unique relationship of “roti-beti” with Nepal. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi twice visited Nepal in his first 15 months of governance. India was the first neighboring nation providing scour at the time of recent devastating earthquake in Nepal. India providing billion dollar credit for infrastructure projects is our basic support base to Nepal.
Accusations of India imposing economic blockade of Nepal are “false, frivolous & misleading” stated BJP leader Vijay Jolly.
Yes, we are concerned for all Nepali’s including madhesis, janajatis and dalits. But off course the Nepali Congress, CPN(UML) and Maoists have to take a call on the sensitive issues of discords in their country stated Mr. Jolly.
We always wanted “Universal Celebrations and not Nightmare of Violence” in Nepal. Loss of 40 lives in violence , large deployment of troops and turmoil in Terai is India’s concern & uneasiness as close neighbor. But we also welcome Nepal PM Sushil Koirala’s dialogue with Madhesi leaders stated Mr. Jolly.
India always supported Nepal during its democratic struggles and assisted to end armed insurgency which claimed more than 10,000 deaths recalled BJP leader Mr. Jolly.
But today we express our strong indignation on anti-India protests and burning of Indian Prime Minister effigies in Nepal. We are hurt & unhappy. But still advise end to violence and talks for reconciliation stated Mr. Jolly.
