BJP team meets Manmohan over Nepal

Special Correspondent

NEW DELHI: A Bharatiya Janata Party delegation met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Saturday to convey to him the party's concern about non-formation of a democratic government in Nepal.

The three-member delegation — the former BJP president, Rajnath Singh, the former Chief Minister of Uttarakhand, B.S. Koshiari, and BJP Overseas Cell joint convener Vijay Jolly — stressed that India should play a positive role to help consolidate the fragmented Nepali democratic political system. While, naturally any decision would be that of the people of Nepal, “India's efforts should lead to the formation of a democratic multi-party people's government in Nepal at the earliest,” the BJP delegation told the Prime Minister.

The non-formation of a democratic government was a matter of concern for the democratic forces in the Indian sub-continent, the BJP said after the morning meeting at 7 Race Course Road.

The Prime Minister briefed the delegation on the current political situation in Nepal, shared its concern over the volatile state of affairs, and apprised the BJP leaders of the assessment made by the Prime Minister's envoy to Nepal Shyam Saran. He said he would ask External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna to brief the BJP in some detail on the government's position on consolidation of democracy in Nepal.
