Will Indian rulers learn alertness about national security from staunch nationalist like Dr. Subramanian Swamy ? Will Indian Govt. take necessary steps to ensure India's safety ?
Kanpur: Commenting on the political unrest in Nepal, Janata Party President Subramanian Swamy has said that it posed a big threat to India.
"The situation in Nepal poses a big threat to our national security. The Maoists (Left-wing extremists) have made a base there. They are tilting in favour of China and have dismissed their Hindu ruled Constitution,' Swamy told the media here.
"Pakistan's Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI) is forging fake Indian currency notes in Nepal and sends them to India. Religion change is rampant in that country. And I believe that this competent Indian government should make some arrangements for Nepal," said Swamy.
Last month, the Nepalese Parliament elected Maoist leader Baburam Bhattarai as prime minister in a move seen as positive for the still fragile peace process.
The Maoists have been demanding 7,000 fighters be absorbed into the national army, and the rest be rehabilitated in the society. Rival political parties say only 5,000 could be integrated.
The future of the fighters is key to the stability of a country that acts as a buffer between China and India, who compete for influence. Nepal sits on the source of rivers supplying water to millions in South Asia.
