Expectedly Nepal’s India elevated Prime Minister Baburam held a one to one ‘secret’ meeting with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on the sidelines of NAM Summit being held in Teheran of Iran. They talked for over an hour.
In fact Nepal PM had gone to Iran simply to meet Man Mohan Singh.
The meeting according to reports, between the two prime ministers took place Thursday evening August 30, 2012. What India is to gulp now from Nepal is any body’s guess.
Nepal’s foreign ministry officials who had accompanied Baburam were taken aback the other day when they heard that their prime minister without informing them had met his Indian master. This Baburam with unfortunate JNU tag.
As per the planning, the meeting was set for early hours on Thursday but due to some reason the meeting got cancelled.
“We were all present at the summit hall (including the prime minister). We have no idea when the prime minister left the venue and met the Indian Prime Minister”, said a bewildered foreign ministry official, writes Nagarik National Daily.
“We came to know about the meeting through online news. We then tried to know who were present during the meeting”, the official claims.
“Baburam was alone representing the country. Leading the Indian team was Indian Prime Minister himself and present at the meeting were India’s security advisor Shiv Shankar Menon, Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai and other foreign ministry officials,” the official reveals.
Nepal caretaker PM must have completely submitted as Menon and Maathai are taken as number one arm twisters. They both far excel Brajesh Mishra.
Not even Foreign Minister Narayan Kaji Shrestha who is also in Teheran was present during the meeting. Who cares Kaji?
Be that as it may, reports have it that during the Indian Prime Minister meet with Nepal PM the former hoped that Nepal’s political leadership was itself capable to resolve their internal problems. Good joke indeed.
He also advised Nepal’s political leaders to unite.
“We believe that Nepal’s political leaders are themselves capable to resolve their internal problems. Unity between political leadership is a must,” stressed Singh.
Baburam appealed Singh to support Nepal through development assistance and increase investments in Nepal.
With this secret meet, analysts have expressed concerns as to what is being snatched from Nepal as per the June 2002 treaty? Awake Nepali nationalists.
