Indian Meddling in Nepal's Political and Administrative Activities

The objectives of this paper are to emphasize India's micromanagement in Nepal's internal affairs and examine the roots of such a situation. To achieve the purpose of examining Indian micromanagement in Nepal, the author used descriptive and analytical methods of inquiry. To further authenticate facts and numbers, key informant interviews were conducted with individuals from academia, politics, and civil society to produce KII criteria. Through this study, the author revealed that India lags behind Nepal in terms of micromanagement. Nepal-India ties have been defined by geolocation, an open border, socio-cultural connection, linguistic proximity, public diplomacy, and more than India's engagement in every political movement. Although India does not advocate for democracy in Nepal, the country's government and administration do. Nepal is forced to accept unilaterally beneficial accords such as Tanakpur (Mahakali), Koshi, Gandaki, and others in order to acquire this chance. Since the 12-point agreement made prior to the issue of the present constitution by the Maoists and the SPA, Indian micromanagement has devastated Nepal's politics and governance. India is meddling in Nepal under the guise of professing to be a democracy, but its involvement in Nepal has vested meaning. i.e., cozy politics and administration, because it promotes numerous political and non-political components that are strongly opposed by one sector of Nepali society, whilst democratic blocks see Indian engagement in Nepal with suspicion. The author identified the causes of India's micromanagement as well as Nepal's politics and administration in this circumstance.
