Prachanda accuses India of encroaching Nepalese land
Kathmandu: Maoist chief Prachanda has accused India of encroaching the Nepalese territory and vowed that his party would not "bow down" before "foreign powers".
Prachanda also alleged that some Indian leaders had still not been able to come out of the British colonial mentality and accused the neighbouring country of interfering in Nepal`s affairs, a charge already denied by India.
He claimed that Maoists are the only forces determined to "preserve national independence" and said his party had started a campaign against the alleged border encroachment in Kalapani, Susta and other areas along the Indo-Nepal frontier.
"We are not willing to take an inch of land of India and will not let India to encroach an inch of Nepali land," he said in Rajbiraj yesterday.
"We are not willing to go for a war with India but we are trying to get our rights," Prachanda said, adding that his party would not "bow down in front of foreign powers."
