Nepal's Maoist leader Prachanda said his attempt to redefine the country's traditional ties with India and China had led to the fall of his government as the former rebels on Friday ended their blockade of the Parliament for lawmakers to elect a new premier on Saturday.

“I deeply feel that the historical necessity for redefining Nepal's relations with the two countries have not yet been completed but the traditional concept of big brother and the smaller one continued," he said. The Maoist supremo had earlier accused India of interfering in Nepal's internal affairs.
