Ra­jen­dra Ma­hato's warn­ing

People's Review - - NEWS - By Our Re­porter

Ra­jen­dra Ma­hato, one among the mem­bers of the Coun­cil of Chair­men of the Ras­triya Janata Party (RJP), has warned that his party may start fresh ag­i­ta­tion af­ter the fes­ti­val (Ch­hat fes­ti­val) and warn the gov­ern­ment about its de­mands. Mean­while, his party has handed over a mem­o­ran­dum to Prime Min­is­ter KP Sharma Oli with the warn­ing that the party may with­draw its sup­port to the gov­ern­ment if the party's con­cerns are not ad­dressed by the gov­ern­ment. Po­lit­i­cal ob­servers, who have been closely fol­low­ing Delhi's ac­tiv­i­ties, be­lieve that Delhi is try­ing to de­velop a dif­fer­ent front against PM Oli. They be­lieve, the tarai ag­i­ta­tion can be in­ten­si­fied im­me­di­ately af­ter the fes­ti­val and also a strong group can emerge within the Com­mu­nist Party of Nepal to chal­lenge Oli. There­fore, PM Oli is likely to face many chal­lenges in the days to come, they have ob­served. The In­dian es­tab­lish­ment has reached to the con­clu­sion that PM Oli should be pun­ished as he didn't re­cip­ro­cate the In­dian ges­ture for de­vel­op­ing good re­la­tions with In­dian PM Naren­dra Modi. Since Nepal de­cided for not par­tic­i­pat­ing at the BIMSTEC joint mil­i­tary ex­er­cise in In­dia, PM Modi has be­come fu­ri­ous with Oli, they say. Ma­hato's warn­ing is in line with the In­dian strat­egy, the very ob­servers say.
