KATHMANDU: Maoist supremo Prachanda today expressed confidence that the Indian leadership would respect Nepalese people’s “sentiments” and hoped that the crippling blockade “imposed” by India on Nepal will not be repeated.
Addressing the 13th convention of Nepali Congress to elect its new leader after the death of its ex-president Sushil Koirala, UCPN Maoist Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal alias Prachanda wondered what was the fault on the part of Nepal that “prompted” India to impose a blockade on Nepal. “I would like to ask through Koshyariji what was our fault that made India to impose blockade on Nepal,” said Prachanda at the event attended by Bhagat Singh Koshyari, vice-president of BJP and former Uttarakhand chief minister.
He also said such blockades should not be repeated. “Nepal has undergone a lot of political experiments. I would seek neighbours’ support in our political experiments,” said Prachanda who is known for his anti-India stance.
“I want to convey this message to the leadership of India through the leaders who are present here,” he said. “We want friendship between our two countries, which are bound together by our unique history, culture, economy and no one can separate them,” Prachanda said. (PTI)
