Chinese envoy to Nepal now makes effort to save PM's chair
Chinese envoy to Nepal now makes effort to save PM's chair

Kathmandu/New Delhi, July 27 (TIWN) In a last ditch effort, Chinese Ambassador to Nepal Hou Yanqi is making all out efforts to prevent a split in the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP).

Though visibly silent on her widely followed Twitter and Facebook accounts since June 30, Yanqi continues to hold behind the door meetings with rival factions of NCP, one led by Prime Minister K.P. Sharma Oli, and another by former Prime Minister Pushp Kamal Dahal Prachanda.

The controversial Ambassador, who is perceived close to Nepal’s Chief of Army Staff General Purna Chandra Thapa, is seen as the architect of the ongoing trouble on the India-Nepal border.

Yanqi, who has more than 44,000 followers on Twitter, mostly Nepali, is quite active with local NGOs, youth forums and trade organisations.

At Kalapani as well as in the recent border tension in Tanakpur, Uttarakhand, local Nepali traders played a key role in launching anti-India protests. At Tanakpur, located in Uttarakhand’s border district of Champawat, Nepal had encroached on no-man’s land, despite serious objections raised by the Indian authorities.
