Recalled Nepal envoy says charges against him false
(MENAFN- Asia Times) Deep Kumar Upadhyay
Upadhyay was recalled by the government on Friday for allegedlycolluding with India to topple the KP Oli government back home.
He told an Indian newspaper that he never accompanied the Indian envoy to the Terai region as has been alleged by the Nepalese government.
Kathmandu’s recall order came after he resisted the government’s decision to postpone President Bidhya Devi Bhandari’s visit to India. He said it was going to hurt ties with India.
Curiously he continues to stay put in his post in Delhi.
“We have not received any official communication from Kathmandu over ambassador’s recall. What we know is only through media. So he very much remains in his current position” sources in the Nepal embassy said.
Nepal had on Saturday cancelled the visit of its President Bidhya Devi Bhandari to India hardly 72 hours before her departure for Delhi.
Though no reason was assigned for cancellation of the trip it was believed to indicate Nepal’s unhappiness with Indiaover itsalleged meddling in the internal affairs of the Himalayan nation.
