Telegraph NepalA nonentity in India’s political corridor but yet a chum of Nepali media, Ashok Mehta- who claims himself as a Nepal expert was mysteriously invited to deliver his versions on Nepal’s peace and constitutional processes at an interaction program held in Kathmandu, April 16, 2012.
Mehta basically is a retired general of the Indian army with fluency in Nepali speaking.
It seems like every Tom, Dick and Harry in New Delhi’s footpath qualify to become a Nepal expert, perplexed critics claim and add, could be India’s inborn talent inherited from the past colonial days.
For the Indian nationals, a platform remains readymade in Nepal.
Let us listen to his skill.
“At least two to three states is a must in the Tarai plains of Nepal,” he said to the much dismay of some Madhesi columnists who happen to still support the demand even as their leaders seem to have already forgotten the demand of ‘One Madhesh One Province’.
Mehta thus caps the possibility of One Madhesh demand.
Critics even claim that at first demand for ‘One Madhesh’ was designed by some declared Nepal haters seated in New Delhi with the sole objective of splitting Nepal that was carried loyally by some local Madhesi parties and their followers being unaware of India’s clandestine design.
Poor Nepali Madhesi population.
However, the India’s South Block buffoons might have later contemplated that any plot to divide Madhesh from Nepal would be counterproductive to India itself as it may trigger similar splits in the nearby Bihar and Uttar Pradesh States. China’s suddenly acquired aggressive posture in Nepali politics might also have forced India to ‘temporarily’ keep on hold the grand design.
So predicted Dr. Pushpa Adhikari while making a serious lecture in New Delhi recently. Read : India virtually ruined Nepal in our website.
“Had India continued to support one Madhesh agenda until disintegration of Madhesh, Chinese forces could have jumped to the Churia hills of Nepal instead of being on the other side of the Himalayas”, claim matured China experts on the condition of anonymity.
“Stability must also be taken into account in addition to identity while creating the states,” claimed Mahta and added, “None of the ethnic communities are in a majority in any region to create states based on ethnicity.”
Mehta also claimed that it was now NC’s turn to lead the government.
Muni went. Mehta came. Who is the next unwanted guest?
