ANSWER: Ranjit Rae
India has expressed concerns over spillover in violence in districts of Bihar following protests and demonstrations at the newly launched secular constitution in Nepal. Kathmandu has decided to adopt the constitution despite India’s advice to the contrary. India Ambassador Ranjit Raw has been called back for consultations on the constitution associated violence. Following the launch of the secular constitution, there have been clashes between Madhesi protesters and Nepali forces, as well as the impact on Indian transporters who have been stuck at the Biratnagar integrated border checkpost because of the violence. Since 2007, when the Seven Party Alliance (SPA) had first signed on to the Constitution-building process, India has been a key influence, even playing guarantor for many of the parties. Rights of Madhesis however were not protected despite assurances to India.
