KATHMANDU – Chairman of Janata Samajwadi Party (JSP) Mahanta Thakur is visiting India.
JSP Chairman Thakur along with executive member Raj Kishor Yadav flew to New Delhi today.
The two leaders of Janata Samajwadi Party are visiting India at a time when the political crisis is deepening in Nepal after the government dissolved the House of Representatives in December last year.
According to Keshav Jha, a leader of JSP, Thakur is visiting India for his medical check-up. He will have a check-up at Medanta Hospital, he said.
Though the visit of both leaders have been said to be personal, they are likely to meet political leaders in New Delhi, according to a source.
Their visit also comes at a time when various parties as well as civil society groups are protesting the government’s move to dissolve the House in the streets.
Laxman Lal Karna, a senior leader of JSP, had also recently warned of launching joint street protest against the ‘unconstitutional’ House dissolution from Falgun first week.
According to Karna, political parties are making preparations to launch a joint people’s movement against the government.
Meanwhile, Nepal Pariwar Dal’s Chairman Ek Nath Dhakal also left for New Delhi today. Former Minister Dhakal is scheduled to meet various leaders of India’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party during his three-day visit.
