China changed its stance, tension increased with Nepal
Pragya said that after India’s blockade in 2015, Nepal started strengthening relations with China. Nepal also signed China’s BRI agreement. In the year 2019, the President of China also visited Nepal after India. Even after all this, the agreements that were signed between Nepal and China have not been implemented. He said that the relationship between China and Nepal is neither getting better nor worse. The reason for this is political hesitation. This kind of situation first started during the era of KP Oli government when he was improving relations with India to save his government.
After this, when the coalition government of Sher Bahadur Deuba and Prachanda was formed, it also did not give much importance to relations with China. Nepalese PM Deuba feared that this would put Nepal’s trusting relationship with India in jeopardy. After this, China changed its stand and started trying to unite the left parties of Nepal. This spoiled China’s relations with Nepali Congress. Not only this, China unilaterally announced that Pokhara Airport is part of BRI. Recently, China’s ambassador has also worsened the atmosphere by giving very controversial statements against India and Nepal. Now the eyes of the world will be on Prachanda’s journey.
