Besides several infrastructural projects under the One Belt One Road project, China will also help Nepal’s reconstruction. Nepal was largely impacted by an earthquake and China will help Nepal overcome the plight. So, as China-Nepal relations deepen, India looks anxious and concerned. China has escalated its investments in Nepal in order to build a larger cooperation in energy and infrastructure. It has also been urging the Nepal government to consider the construction of the India-Nepal-China corridor through the Himalayan Ranges.
China’s One Belt One Road project is an aim to revive the traditional silk route. China hence seeks cooperation and connectivity with Asian and European nations by building railways, ports and airports. China has already invested big in Pakistan under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor. Now with another neighbour being pulled by the OROB project, India’s concerns seem valid. How can India now enhance its influence over South Asia with yet another ally inclining towards China?
