Envoy Upadhyay worked against national interest: DPM Rawal
KATHMANDU, May 7: Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Defense, Bhim Rawal on Saturday said that the Nepal’s Ambassador to India, Deep Kumar Upadhyay was recalled for working against national interest.

“Envoys should follow government’s directives and maintain diplomatic decorum,” he said.


Minister Rawal said that envoy was recalled after he left his workplace sans informing the Ministry for Foreign Affairs to attend a program with Indian ambassador to Nepal and was involved in attempts to topple the government.  

On a separate note, DPM Rawal claimed that President Bidya Devi Bhandari cancelled her India visit due to internal factors.
