Nepal's Cable Opretors Blocks All Indian Channels Over "Blockade"

Kathmandu; Nov.29:  Nepal Cable TV Operators have blocked all Indian Channels for indefinite period in protest against blockade of goods into the country. Several Trucks carrying goods were stranded on the India-Nepal border and this development has strained the relations between both the countries.

Madhesis have been protesting over "discriminatory" seven-province model of new Constitution.

Earlier, expressing concern over growing "anti- India" sentiment in Nepal, Indian Ambassador to Nepal Ranjit Rae had on Friday said, "We sense that this is being used for certain objective - political or otherwise."

"We are deeply concerned with the growing anti-India sentiment. Encouraging such a sentiment is equally harmful to both India and Nepal," he said, while speaking at an event 'Nation Ahead Series' here.

"There are certain narratives," he said, "There is a section which is encouraging anti-India sentiment as it helps them in some way."

Rae said there is a sense of grievance in certain parts of Nepal that needs to be addressed. "We have no views on what needs to be done. Our intense desire is that these problems should be resolved. These are political problems and should be resolved through dialogues and negotiations," Rae added.

"There is widespread misperception of India's stand on this issue. We have policy vis-a-vis Nepal and not in relation to a community. If the potential conflicts are not resolved, it may have consequences. This is important for longer stability in Nepal," he said.
