AGARTALA, Feb 17 (TIWN): Nepal has taken exception to a recent statement made by Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb. Earlier, Deb had said that Union home minister Amit Shah had claimed that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) would soon form the government in Nepal.

While speaking at a public event in Agartala on Saturday, Deb had said Shah, when serving as BJP president, had told party leaders that the BJP would establish its rule in other regional countries as part of its 'Atmanirbhar South Asia' initiative. 

On Tuesday, Nepal foreign minister Pradeep Kumar Gyawali, confirmed that the Government of Nepal has conveyed its formal objection to the abovementioned remarks made by the BJP leader. 

"Noted. Formal objection has been already conveyed," Gyawali said in a tweet in response to a Nepali Twitter user, who had drawn his attention to the statement.
