KATHMANDU, May 26: India has said that the dissolution of parliament and subsequent political developments in Kathmandu are Nepal's 'internal affairs'.
In response to a media query, official Spokesperson for the Indian Ministry of External Affairs, Arindam Bagchi said India had taken note of the recent development in Nepal. "We view these as internal matters of Nepal to be dealt by them under their own domestic framework and democratic processes," he said.
"As a neighbor and friend, India remains unwavering in its support for Nepal and its people on their journey toward progress, peace, stability and development,” the spokesperson further said.
The remarks of the Indian ministry spokesperson comes amid allegations that New Delhi was supporting Oli's authoritarian ambitions, dismantling all democratic institutions. Opposition political parties in Nepal have mounted both legal and political battles against the move of Prime Minister Oli and President Bidya Devi Bhandari to dissolve parliament.
