An extended private visit of ousted king Gyanendra has sparked speculation in India, amid the political crisis that has stalled the peace process in the country.
Gyanendra is in New Delhi for over two weeks following a vist to Jaipur for a private function. Although his India visit was earlier scheduled for two weeks, his stay in India has been extended beyond one month. The visit of the former monarch to India comes amid the stalled 2006 peace process.
According to the daily, Gyanendra was seeking “political meetings” in Delhi.
Guna Raj Luitel of the Annapurna Post daily saw a link between the prolonged stay of Gyanendra in Delhi and the current political deadlock in Kathmandu.
The prolonged stay of Gyanendra in Delhi and the ongoing political deadlock in Nepal are not just coincidences, he said.
