CPN-UML accuses Nepal Govt. of practicing 'imbalanced diplomacy'

ANI  |  Kathmandu [Nepal] 

The main opposition party of Nepal, CPN-UML, has accused the government of practicing an 'imbalanced diplomacy'.

The Himalayan Times quoted lawmaker Rajan Bhattarai as saying that the government was making inappropriate connections between internal issues and international affairs, thereby jeopardising the diplomatic balance.

Bhattarai, who was speaking at the meeting today, also demanded a clarification from Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal on the issue.

Meanwhile, Workers and Peasants Party lawmaker Anuradha Thapa Magar stated that the government's failure to ensure Chinese President Xi Jinping's visit would leave long-term impacts here.

Stating that the next Constitution amendment should not incorporate the Hindi language as a language used in government administration, Nepali lawmaker Dhanaraj Gurung argued that it would be disrespect to the nationality.
