India has refuted media reports that Mehta urged the political leaders of Madhes to wage movement for the sake of Madhes.

Issuing a press release on Friday, Kathmandu-based Indian Embassy said that reports attributing remarks to the Consulate General were misleading.

“India remains committed to supporting the constitution making process for the establishment of a stable, democratic and prosperous Nepal and will cooperate in the manner determined exclusively by the people and leadership of Nepal,” the statement said.
PRESS RELEASE

We have seen media reports attributing certain remarks to an
official in the Consulate General of India, Birgunj, which are
misleading and factually incorrect. Such attributions seek to detract
from the friendly relations between India and Nepal.
India remains committed to supporting the constitution making
process for the establishment of a stable, democratic and prosperous
Nepal and will cooperate in the manner determined exclusively by the
people and leadership of Nepal. India desires positive outcomes in
Nepal, which necessarily must remain Nepali led and Nepali driven.

The embassy also said such attributions sought to detract from the friendly relations between India and Nepal.
