In what looks a bizarre turn of events after the government change fiasco, the incumbent government has decided to recall Nepali Ambassador to India, Deep Kumar Upadhyay.
He was appointed as Nepali Ambassador to India in April last year from the Nepali Congress quota.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs recalled Upadhyay levelling three charges against him including his brazen involvement in toppling the current KP Oli led government. He has also been accused of coming to Nepal without informing the Ministry and hobnobbing with Indian Ambassador to Nepal Ranjit Rae to visit Madhes districts against government.
Top sources in the government told the Post that Cabinet has already decided to recall envoy Upadhyay after his short conversation with Prime Minister K P Oli on Friday morning. The conversation reportedly took place after the cancellation of President Bidhya Devi Bhandari’s scheduled visit to India.
The government has also accused him of non-cooperation during PM Oli's India visit in February and the proposed official visit of President Bidya Devi Bhandari to India.
President Bhandari's five-day official visit slated to being from May 9 was cancelled by Nepali side on Friday.
After Nepali side unilaterally cancelled the visit, ambassador Upadhyay made a telephone call to PM Oli and expressed his displeasure over cancellation of the President’s visit.
