Nepal and India



SUBHAS RAI
Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal's visit to India, especially at this time of political turmoil at home, seems completely purposeless, except probably to revamp his personal relations with the Indian politicians. The UML government seems rather too beholden to India. Last month, Defence Minister Bidya Bhandari's pledge to India to provide weapons for the Nepal Army affected the country's peace process, while the agenda for Foreign Minister Sujata Koirala's trip to India was also ambiguous. The current government is temporary. Madhav Kumar Nepal has to understand that India may be plotting against Nepal, forcing to sign unbeneficial long term treaties or even taking advantage of our unstable situation. Hence, the major priority in Nepal's visit to India should be to right past wrongs like the unequal 1950 treaty and other irritants.
