Indian hegemony in Nepal remains intact since 1950: Ram Hari Joshi

Ram Hari Joshi

Senior Leader, Nepali Congres

The Nepali Congress led the 1950 movement for a political change. But the benefit of that went into the pockets of the then King and the Ranas. As per the wishes of India, the revolution was made to land in a compromise. The tripartite agreement was made to favor the Indian interests. When the King went in exile in Delhi, India wanted to maneuver the upcoming Nepal political changes for its advantage. In the process, India kept King Tribhuwan in its firm grip. Concluding that if the Nepali revolution for the political change prolonged then that would not be in the larger interest of the Indian regime thus India instantly brought the King, the Ranas and the Nepali Congress together and managed a tripartite agreement between these three forces. The then Indian Ambassador to Nepal, C.P. N Sinha played a crucial role in managing this tripartite agreement. The Indian Prime Minister Nehru too used to work as per the suggestions of Ambassador Sinha. Sinha has a tremendous role in the institutionalization of the Indian influence in Nepali politics.

Since then, the Indian hegemony in Nepal remains intact.

B. P was not in favor of the agreement to be signed in Delhi, however, he had to comply with the decision when Matrika Prasad Koirala Okayed the Indian decision.

The revolution was not waged just to restore King Tribhuwan to power and for making Mohan Shumsher the country’s Prime Minister.

-Ram Hari Joshi, Senior Leader, Nepali Congress.

  • The comments are nothing new and surprising ; there is no point repeating what has already been said by late B.P Koirala himself. What is puzzling instead is the inability of our politicians in power not to have learnt lessons as of now. It is obvious that big and powerful countries may have multiple of interests to promote. It is for us, as weak and small, to decide prudently how we can safeguard our national interests without prejudice to those of India, or China. International trust can be gained only when we succeed to pursue a consensus foreign policy which is balanced,informed and credible .
