Modi is racist and inhuman. His unreasonable and undemocratic blocked to Nepal shows his real personality. Dear Indian citizens, Nepal is just settling the Maoist conflict and trying to rehabilitate those insurgents. Political instability in Nepal is increasing anti-Indian sentiment which will give space to IS, ISI and other anti Indian activists. I head it is to please kith and kin of protesters across the border in Bihar to gain their sympathy for Bihar election. Modi's move is shortsightedness and poor diplomacy which innocent Indians have to pay in long term.
