Lucknow, Sep 29: Samajwadi Party supremo and former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mulayam Singh Yadav has urged Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to immediately intervene into the deadlock among the political parties in Nepal on democracy leading to unrest in the Himalayan country. He has also appealed to Nepal Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala and Maoist leader Prachanda to join hands for creating a healthy democratic system there.
''I will write a letter to Prime Minister over the Nepal disturbances very soon,'' Mr Yadav told a press conference here this morning.
The former defence minister and former UP CM said that the disturbances in Nepal were certainly affecting the economic and political atmosphere in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar.
''India has close ties with Nepal in all the fields and our country should immediately come forward to help them to sort out their differences,'' he added.
Criticising the present Mayawati government in UP for ignoring the issue, the SP leader said the BSP government has no time to address such critical issue.
He also asked the centre and state to help those people who are entering the state from Nepal side due to the disturbances. ''We should not forget that our leaders like Ram Manohar Lohia, Jai Prakash Narain and the freedom fighters were given shelter by Nepal in the past,'' he added.
Commenting on the foreign policy of the centre, he said the present government had failed to address the policy meant to protect the sovereignty of the small nations.
