S.D. Muni-India’s self declared Nepal expert and more so the presumed political mentor of Prime Minister Baburam from JNU days presenting his “extraordinary” thoughts at a seminar sponsored by the Indian Embassy in Kathmandu and organized by political science department of Tribhuwan University has criticized India’s South Block mandarins.
Yet another JNU is in offing in Nepal time permitting.
According to India’s brilliant Professor Muni, the South Block officials do not have basic information on Nepal’s political situation yet they are allowed to chart India’s Nepal policy.
Appears not that much happy with the functioning of Mecca of Nepali politics. He further demands perhaps more twisting of the Nepali arms.
“There are some senior officials in South Block (India’s Foreign Ministry) who do not know the difference in Matrika Prasad (M.P), Bisheshwar Prasad (B.P) and Girija Prasad (G.P) but, they are in-charge of Nepal desk”.
Thanks he forgot to mention Rajendra Prasad.
Perhaps Madame Sonia should replace all south block mandarins with Pundit Muni at the earliest.
“Majority of the scribes except a few based in Nepal do not have in-depth knowledge of the relations between the two countries”, said a frustrated looking Sukh Dev Muni and added, “India bashing in the name of nationalism is self-immolating.”
Muni continuing with his inner frustration added, “The relation between the two countries is based on propaganda than facts.”
He denied accepting the fact that India has been unnecessarily poking its nose in the internal matters of Nepal.
Best joke of the week.
“Rather than resolving disputes locally, India has been invited to extend its helping hand, which is not a matter of interference.”
Analysts opine that Muni’s presence in Nepal in itself tantamount to interference in the internal matters of Nepal.
“Nepali leaders rarely unite. And you criticize New Delhi”, poor Muni also said. Well said!
Can a Nepali leader dare to make such humiliating remarks against India while being in Delhi?
Shame on us all. And shame on those who invited this distinguished Indian national.
Yet Muni did his country's job well. Great nationalist.
