India extends friendship to China-leaning Oli

NEW DELHI: After a communist alliance widely believed to have been cobbled together by China stormed to power in Nepal, India said on Thursday it looked forward to working with the democratically elected government and to supporting peace and stability in the country.
This was India’s first reaction to the Nepal election outcome which has swept CPN-UML leader K P Oli, the senior alliance partner, back to power. “India welcomes the conduct of parliamentary elections and first ever provincial elections in Nepal,” said MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar.
“We congratulate the government and the people of Nepal. India has age old, unique, time tested ties of friendship with Nepal. We look forward to working with the next democratically elected government in Nepal to advance our close and multifaceted partnership across all sectors and to support Nepal in its pursuit of peace, stability, economic prosperity and all round development,” he added.
The Left alliance between CPN-UML and CPN-Maoist Centre, which is headed by Prachanda, won 116 seats out of the total 165 seats in the parliamentary polls. Oli’s party won 80 seats, which is close to 50% of the total 165 seats, under the direct voting system. The CPN-Maoist Centre got 36 and the pro-India Nepali Congress was reduced to 23 seats.
