Banhomie With Nepal

  • Indian leadership is conscious of the self-respect and pride of the Nepalese people. Jawaharlal Nehru wrote in “The Discovery of India” and also in “Glimpses of World History” that Nepal has been the only truly independent country of South Asia.
  • Nepal responded to India’s needs as a friendly neighbor in the past. Its political leaders contributed to India’s struggle for freedom.
  • People-to-people relationship between India and Nepal is unmatched.
  • Even in the remotest corners of India, Nepalese enjoy good will. There is nobody in India that wishes ill for Nepal.
  • The comments of the Army Chief that, Nepal is acting at someone else’s behest is unwarranted.
  • Both the countries have an established mechanism to deal with the boundary matters.
