"I was simply mulling over where Nepal stands today n where it`s heading in future, on these fronts.. we kinda know the past .. not saying it`s either good or bad.. just mulling.." she wrote in a separate tweet.

The tweets didn't go down well with many as Twitterati was quick to slam her statements.

A user said, "Nepal is soon going to turn into China's colony."
