Kathmandu, Sept 25: The simmering unease in the Indo-Nepal ties over Nepal's new Constitution was underlined today with the government here calling in the Indian envoy to raise the issue of "obstruction" in the supply of essential goods coming in from the Indian side, on a day when India again pressed for addressing of the unrest in this country "credibly and effectively".

Indian envoy Ranjit Rae was called in by the Acting Nepalese Foreign Minister Khaga Raj Adhikari after hundreds of protesters opposing the new Constitution blocked a key trade checkpoint on the Indo-Nepal border.
