Nepal PM ‘Prachanda’ to visit India first, keeping aside Chinese invitation


Share post:

The new Prime Minister of Nepal, Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’, is hinting at stronger relations with India. Prachanda, who had entered office in December 2022, has decided to continue with the tradition of the Nepali PM’s first foreign visit being to India. It is being expected that Prachanda will arrive in India during the second week of the month of April.

For the same, he has decided not to accept the Chinese invitation for the Boao Forum meeting to be held on March 28th in Henan. When Prachanda had become the PM of Nepal for the first time in 2008, he had gone to China for his first foreign trip after entering office rather than visiting India. This was when he had attended the Olympic inauguration function in China.

Prior to his visit to India in April, Prachanda has to go through a floor-test and has to expand the cabinet. In the Nepali parliament of 275 MPs, along with the 89 MPs of the Nepali Congress, Prachanda has clear support of 140 other MPs from other smaller parties. As per experts, it is being expected that Prachanda can garner more support than the current 140 in the floor-test. While opponent KP Oli and his coalition has 95 MPs in support only.
