Nepal has lodged a protest over the statement of Biplav Dev, the Chief Minister of Tripura, India. Nepal has expressed concern over the BJP’s statement about forming a government in neighboring countries. According to the Kathmandu Post, Nepal’s Ambassador Nilambar Acharya spoke to Arindam Bagchi, joint secretary in charge of Nepal and Bhutan at the Ministry of External Affairs. He expressed displeasure over this statement and sought clarification.
India said that some of the ongoing news in Indian media referred to Dev’s statement. We will be able to say something on the matter in the Rooty press briefing on Thursday after fully understanding the whole matter.
What is the whole matter
Recently, Biplav narrated an interesting anecdote at an event which came up for discussion on Monday. According to Biplav Dev, this story is from when BJP President Amit Shah used to be. He had said that Shah had visited Assam. There was a conversation between us that there is a BJP government in many states of the country. To this, Shah replied that Sri Lanka and Nepal remain. We should take BJP there too and win elections there too.
Biplav’s statement was called by the opposition as undemocratic
This statement of Biplab was described by many opposition parties including CPI (M), Congress as unpopular. He said that such statements could affect the relations of friendly countries such as Nepal and Sri Lanka.
