Dahal’s overtures slammed

Opposition parties have slammed the government for ‘involving India in amending Nepal’s constitution’.

Speaking in the House on Sunday, UML Member of Parliament (MP) Yagyaraj Sunuwar said that it was a shame that Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal sent his special envoy to New Delhi to discuss amending Nepal’s constitution.

On Saturday, Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Bimalendra Nidhi had handed over PM Dahal’s letter to India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In the letter, Dahal is believed to have assured Modi that Nepal is ready to amend the constitution to address the grievances of Madhesi and Janajati dissenters.

“The Dahal government has shown that nothing can happen in Nepal without India’s consent,” said Sunuwar. “It is a big shame.”

Nepal Workers Peasants Party (NWPP) MP Prem Suwal also flayed the government for allowing India to intervene in Nepal’s internal affairs by expressing a written commitment to amend the constitution.

Dahal had become PM last month, vowing to resolve the Madhes crisis by forging a consensus to amend the constitution.  And India is believed to have backed his government.

Modi has invited Dahal for a three-day India visit through Nidhi. The two PMs are scheduled to hold a meeting by mid September.

  1. Sujan Karki on Says:

    It has always been obvious that Dahal will never hesitate to sell the country to the highest bidder between India and China for a few thousand crores in his personal kitty. The problem is that we Nepalis are so stupid that we allow such leaders to return to power time and again, directly or indirectly.

  2. Shree Shrestha on Says:

    Dahal should have asked amending the Indian Constitution to allow separate states for Nepalese in India.

  3. Anonimous on Says:

    The current issue being who is a war criminal involves all countries, China and India paid the guns.
