In the last few days, Hindu extremists in bordering Indian states have launched a movement against Nepal's Maoists, while the Indian administration is tightening its noose on them. In Nepal, meanwhile, the palace continues to organise feasts. It may seem like there is no connection between these two events, but sources think there is. There is a tacit agreement between the palace and India. In December 2006, BJP parliamentarian and a preacher of the Gorakhnath temple in Gorakhpur, Adityanath had passed a resolution against Nepal becoming a secular country.
Upendra Yadav and Lakshman Lal Karna had attended the meeting. Lately, Adityanath is advocating the expulsion of Nepali Maoists from India, giving provocative sermons and issuing pamphlets (see pic). Meanwhile, India has expelled Bir Bahadur Shahi and his friend on the charges of being close to the Maoists. Even Nepali organisation in India with perceived links to the Maoists are coming under increasing scrutiny of the Indian authorities. Jaswant Singh, during his recent visit to Nepal, publicly objected to Nepal becoming a secular state.
Upendra Yadav is spearheading a movement to disintegrate Nepal and has demanded the dissolution of the parliament to weaken the Maoists.
