The Indian Embassy in Kathmandu has refuted the media reports that the Deputy Chief of Mission, Binay Kumar asked the Madhesi leaders to intensify Kathmandu-centric protests until the government addresses their demands.
The embassy claimed that DCM Kumar met district leaders of all political parties.
“He met leaders of all parties,” Indian Embassy Spokesperson Ruby Jaspreet Sharma told Republica Online, “The discussions actually focused on the development projects supported by the Government of India.”
“Misleading media reports may harm India-Nepal relations,” she said.
Indian Embassy in a tweet said that no political issues were discussed during his visit and charged that the reports were a mischievous effort to create controversies.
