India takes note of Chinese interference in Nepal
New Delhi: India has taken note of the reports of alleged Chinese monetary involvement (rpt) involvement in the on-going Prime Ministerial elections in Nepal.
"New Delhi has taken note of the reports," sources said here on Monday, two days after allegations of a Maoist leader trying to buy MPs with the help of a Chinese "friend"
surfaced. A wiretap on Saturday alleged that the Maoists have sought Rs 50 crore from China to "buy" lawmakers to get their supremo elected to the coveted post.
In a telephonic conversation, the tape of which was leaked to the media in Kathmandu, Unified CPN-Maoists` Foreign Department chief Krishna Bahadur Mahara was purportedly heard asking an unknown Chinese official for Rs 50 crore to buy 50 MPs, apparently from Terai-based Madhesi parties which have been boycotting the polls.
However, Mahara, in a statement, dismissed the tape as "fabricated, misleading and fictitious."
