On Tuesday, dozens of students demonstrated in front of China’s embassy in the capital of Nepal. These students were protesting the meeting of Chinese Ambassador Hou Yangqi with the ruling party leaders. They raised slogans of China Go Back and showed posters to stamp their resentment.
Chinese Ambassador Yangki is accused of interfering in the internal affairs of the ruling Communist Party of Nepal when the party is mired in internal differences and party leaders have demanded Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli’s resignation.
Yangki is in the news for meeting Nepal’s ruling and opposition parties, his interference in government departments. It is also being told that when Oli’s chair was in trouble in May, it was Yangki who saved him from being pulled down the chair. However, only the leaders of Oli’s party are rejecting this.
Party spokesperson Narayan Kazi Shrestha said that we deny everything about the conspiracies going on inside Nepal’s politics. As is being said, this foreign power is driving Nepal’s politics, it is running foreign power. We reject it. Nepal is an independent country and is capable of making its own decisions. If anyone intends to interfere in our affairs, we oppose it.
The students said – Yangki should be confined to the embassy. The Independent Student Union also showed posters of Yaganki during their protest. The students said that Yaganki should be confined to the embassy, not the homes of our leaders. She should shut up.
According to a report in the Kathmandu Post, Yangki also met President Bidyadevi, Prime Minister Oli, former Prime Minister Madhav Nepal and Jhalanath Khanal on Tuesday. An official of the Chinese embassy told the post that we do not want to see the ruling party in trouble. We want the party leaders to resolve their differences within themselves.
