Changing scenario in Nepal
Kathamandu warming up to Beijing is a potential threat and cause of worry to India.
Certain changes are taking place in Nepal, both in its internal politics and in its external relations with China. For one thing, ever since the monarchy ended a decade ago in December 2007, Nepal has failed repeatedly to pass and implement a Constitution. The latest Constitution, adopted in September 2015, is still to be formally promulgated. Minister for Information and Communication, Mohan Bahadur Basnet, has gone on record saying the Constitution will come into force only after the provincial and parliamentary elections have been held this November.
