Organizations affiliated with the Nepal UML party have lodged their protest at the Indian Embassy, May 18, 2012, against the fresh provocative utterances made by the Indian Consulate office Chief in Birganj.
The note submitted at the Lainchour Indian embassy partly reads, “The declaration made by S. D. Mehta tantamount to a naked intervention of the Indian regime on Nepal’s sovereignty and territorial integrity”.
The statement demands that Mr. Mehta be sent back to the country of his origin at the earliest.
The Youth Association Nepal and All Nepal Nationalist Students Union who had approached the Embassy for lodging their protest have further said that “if Mr. Mehta is not sent back then we will be forced to bring in some more protest programs in the days ahead”.
Mr. Mahesh Basnet, the President of the Youth Association of Nepal and Madhav Dhungel of the Students Union later addressed a corner meet after submitting the letter of protest at the Indian Embassy.
Similarly, the revolutionary students union too has demanded that the Birganj Consul, Mr. S. D. Mehta be awarded diplomatic penal actions for his highly objectionable utterances wherein he has ignored the code of diplomatic conducts and spoken against the sovereignty of a friendly country.
On behalf of the Revolutionary students, President Himal Sharma has issued a press note which states that “we hereby suggest the Indian government not to make unnecessary intervention in Nepal’s internal matters and demand that Mr. Mehta must apologize for his provocative utterances”.
Or else, reads the statement, “No foreigners deserve the right to indulge in conspiratorial activities by being inside the Nepali soil”.
But what about Subrato Das?
