By K.N. Pandita – Indian Ministry of External Affairs is getting exposed inch by inch in its handling of Nepal crisis. In the first place New Delhi was never clear whether it should tow the line of monarchy or of people in Nepal.
With its dubious role in Nepal over several decades in the past, India provided space to the Chinese as well as Pakistani intelligence agencies to fish in troubled waters.
For three decades in the past, Kathmandu has become the hub of ISI’s anti-India conspiracies. No wonder, therefore, many fundamentalist-terrorist leaders based in Pakistan, Bangladesh and other Islamic countries, could very comfortably meet and plan in Kathmandu with impunity and obviously with tacit knowledge of the Indian and Nepalese intelligence outfits. In particular Kashmir separatist leaders met with their mentors all over the world in Kathmandu not once or twice but throughout the decade and half of insurgency in Kashmir.
Never did New Delhi lodge a serious protest with the Nepalese government against the use of Nepalese soil by anti-India elements. Is there a nexus between the Indian and non-Indian intelligence groups? Are the corrupt Indian super agencies minting money through this nexus?
