KATHMANDU: Chinese Ambassador to Nepal Hou Yanqi has been involved in hectic political engagements after a split in the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP).

The Ambassador called on former Speaker Krishna Bahadur Mahara at the latter’s residence in Khumaltar on Friday.

It is said that the recent political situation was discussed during the meeting.

Sources claimed that envoy Hou enquired with Mahara about the cause for the split in the ruling party and the possibility for reunification.

Likewise, she also met NCP Chairman of Prachanda faction Madhav Kumar Nepal today.

Earlier, the Chinese ambassador had met President Bidya Devi Bhandari, NCP Chairman Prachanda, and former Energy Minister Barshaman Pun.

Ambassador Yanqi swings into action when any dispute in the ruling party reaches a climax.

It has been proven that as the feud within the ruling party heightens, Chinese Ambassador Yanqi becomes proactive in Kathmandu as she makes hurried moves to visit NCP big-wigs.

Political observers have to note that China, like in the past, has been particularly concerned over the row within the ruling NCP, and the latest political developments here in Nepal.

It may be noted that Yanqi has been accustomed to intensifying meetings with the NCP top-notch leaders to prevent the party from splitting.

She had also met and discussed with the NCP top leaders, including NCP Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal, senior leader Madhav Kumar Nepal and Jhalanath Khanal in May this year when the party was on the verge of split.

China government’s move about the micromanagement of Nepali politics has drawn international attention towards Nepal, of late, observers say.

Observers in Nepal dub the ambassador’s moves as unusual while some have taken it an apparent move as this is a mere continuation of such initiations that have taken in the past.
