K.P.Oli, the chairman of the UML and now the 41st Prime Minister Nepal, in an interview with the South China Morning Post, Hongkong made three very significant points in Nepal’s relations with China and India.  These were

The impending visit of Indian Foreign Minister to Nepal even before the new government is formed should be welcomed.  This visit was preceded by two calls from Indian Prime Minister inviting K.P.Oli to visit  India  and the response of Oli is very encouraging. In turn,  Oli invited the Indian PM to visit Mukthinath and Lumbini and significantly not Janakpur!

It is more than a month since the elections under the new constitution took place.  Still, there appears to be no immediate chance of the new government being formed.  It may take another month or even more and as one commentator said that perhaps it may need a third Andolan to get a federal government in place!

There has not been much by way of an official response from India to the communist takeover in Nepal.  It looks like a policy of “wait and see” and that  is good.

It is unfortunate but true that in any political discourse in Kathmandu Valley, the expression “post blockade” politics often comes out from many people including those who were considered friendly to India.
