Hydro politics



You've said "a careful scrutiny of the past 60 years of history shows that the monarchy did utmost to frustrate India's vital national interest in Nepal-in field of security, energy, and development." Can you [explain]?
There's a perception that India's sensitive security aspects have not been catered to and I see that most of that has happened when monarchy was powerful.

Hydropower, energy is India's need. You have a potential of 85,000 MW, commercially viable to the tune to of 45,000 MW. If you harness it, we are willing to buy it... For heaven's sake, do it for the sake of Nepalis. India is an economic opportunity, come and take part in it. We are willing to share our prosperity. We've allowed private companies. If the government is a problem, deal privately with them.
