Nepalese Foreign Minister Pradeep Gyawali has raised objection over Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb's remark citing Union Home Minister Amit Shah that BJP has plans to expand in neighbouring countries like Nepal and Sri Lanka.

In response to a tweet, Gyawali said, "Noted. Formal objection has been already conveyed."

While addressing the party workers in Agartala, the Tripura Chief Minister recalled his meeting with Amit Shah, who was then BJP national president, during his visit to the state and said, "When the home minister was our party chief, we said that BJP had come to power in several states."

"In response, the minister (then BJP chief) said that Nepal and Sri Lanka are still left. He said that we have to expand the party to Sri Lanka and Nepal. We have to win there too," Deb added.
