India’s External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said that India would play its role to find solution to the crisis facing Nepal and hoped that solution will emerge within 5-7 days.
Replying to a debate in Rajya Sabha, upper chamber of the Indian Parliament on India-Nepal relations, Swaraj said that India wanted to see a political solution and resumption of supplies at the earliest.
“Still a way can be found… We are doing the same… We want to see a resolution through consensus so that supplies could be restored at the earliest,” Swaraj said adding India has conveyed this the Nepal government as well as the agitating Madhesis. “We hope some solution will emerge in 5-7 days,” she said.
Swaraj refuted the accusations that India has been imposing blockade on Nepal adding that India was keen to send the supplies.
“We are not inhuman… 11,206 trucks, loaded with supplies, are waiting at the Raxaul-Birganj border post. They are not able to move forward because of the protest and we are not allowing them to come back, thinking they could get some chance to proceed,” she said.
Swaraj also said that 864 trucks have gone into Nepal from one border point on December 6,compared to 450 trucks that usually go.
