Koirala has no plan to meet Gyanendra

Prerana Marasini

KATHMANDU: Nepali Congress president Girija Prasad Koirala, who left for New Delhi on Wednesday afternoon, claimed that his visit does not include a meeting with the former king, Gyanendra Shah.

Before his departure, he told reporters that he does not need to go to India to meet him. “If I have to meet him [Gyanendra Shah], I can meet him here [Kathmandu].”

The former king is in India since February 25.

Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoists) has raised concern over Mr. Koirala’s visit to India, where he will meet top political leaders. They say it is a plot to topple the government led by them.

Health check-up

Mr. Koirala said the main purpose of his visit was for a health check-up. The octogenarian leader has been suffering from a respiratory disease for long time.
