Dhruba Kumar Dhakal, LONDON: Nepalis living in Britain opposed to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday staged protests here against his visit to Britain, accusing the latter of imposing an unofficial blockade on Nepal.
The social media platform Twitter was swamped by posts saying “Modi (is) not welcome in UK”.
Pictures on Twitter showed people gathered at Downing Street, holding placards criticising Modi, who is on a three-day visit to Britain.
There were also demonstrations by some holding Nepalese flags and carrying placards that read: “Modi, remove illegal blockade in Nepal”.
They claimed it was against Nepal’s transport rights as a land-locked nation and related international trade laws and treaties.
They had gathered in front of the British Prime Minister’s Office at 10 Downing Street from the early afternoon.
Various organisations of Nepali diaspora had led the demonstration.
Modi embarked on the three-day official visit to Britain on Thursday.
