Nepal has assured a Congress party delegation that its soil will not be allowed for any anti-India activities.

Nepalese Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala gave this assurance when an AICC delegation led by party general secretary Digvijay Singh had a meeting with him in Kathmandu.

Congress spokesman Shakil Ahmed, who was also part of the delegation, said they met leaders of all political parties, including Prachanda of Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) in the Himalayan country and everyone favoured elections.

Asked whether they met the Nepal King, he said the delegation had gone for strengthening the process of democracy.

On whether the King should have any role in the politics there, he said it is an issue for the people of Nepal to decide and the Congress was against any interference in its affairs.

They also met leaders from Terai region where ethnic Madhesi groups are demanding greater autonomy.
