Greetings!

Nepal has firmly been into India's sphere of influence for decades.

However, in the current context of Sino-Indian competition, the electoral triumph of the left coalition and the subsequent reunification of the two main communist parties into a single governing political force are the signal of a shift in Nepal's foreign policy; which means the country will seek closer ties with the PRC to attract much-needed investments and to gain more autonomy from India.

But for New Delhi, this is a another negative geopolitical development, especially considering the recent events in other countries like the Maldives.
