India will do all for better ties with Nepal: Rajnath

New Delhi


Home Minister Rajnath Singh said on Tuesday that India wants good relations with Nepal and it will do everything to better strained relations.

"We want very good relations with Nepal. We will do everything for betterment of our relations with our neighbours," Singh told the media here.

Nepal has accused India of covertly backing Madhes-based parties protesting against Kathmandu's new constitution and blockading the India-Nepal border, causing widespread shortages in the Himalayan nation.

India says it can't be blamed for the situation in Nepal. Nepal had been fully dependent on gasoline imports from India for years. - IANS
