The Communist government of Nepal has strongly protested against India for including Kalapani area at the tri junction of Nepal, India and Tibet. “India should immediately withdraw its army from there” said the Nepal Prime Minister K P Oli.
The Nepalese government has also said that Indian forces will be forced to evacuate Kalapani area and, the armed forces of Nepal are capable to take back their own land. It further said that the armed forces of Nepal will protect every inch of the country. “We will not allow even an inch of our territory to be occupied by any country, India must vacate it,” said PM Oli.
The controversy started after redraw its map in order to accommodate latest changes in status of Jammu & Kashmir. The Indian government has maintained that the new map accurately depicts its territory.
“Our map accurately depicts the sovereign territory of India. The new map has in no manner revised our boundary with Nepal… The boundary delineation exercise with Nepal is ongoing under the existing mechanism. We reiterate our commitment to find a solution through dialogue in the spirit of our close and friendly bilateral relations,” said the Ministry of External Affairs.
Nepalese government is protesting against India, despite the fact that India has accurately depicted the map. On the other hand, China has encroached on hundreds of acres of Nepalese land, but, the Nepalese government has not made a single statement. Instead, the Communist government of Nepal has arrested the people, who protested against Chinese encroachment.
According to the Ministry’s data, Nepal would lose several hundred hectares of land to Tibet, which is under Chinese control. Some Nepalese areas like Arun Khola, Kamu Khola and Sum Jung are now parts of Tibet’s Tingisyan area.
China has encroached 10 hectares of land in Sindhupalchowk district’s Bhotekoshi and Kharanekhola areas, six hectares of land in the Bhagdare River in Humla district and four hectares of land in Karnali district but the Nepal government has not taken any action against the ally.
Several protesters hit the streets of Saptari, Bardiya, Kapilvastu district and raised anti-China slogans and burnt the effigy of Chinese President Xi Jinping. The protesters shouted, “Go back China and Return Nepali land”, during the protest.
Since the Communist government came to power in Nepal, Chinese influence and interference in the Himalayan country has increased. The Communist government has laid a red carpet for Chinese officials and companies. But, the common people of Nepal are fed up with China’s illegal activities and, widespread protests are being held.
China is carrying out several illegal activities in order to control Nepal. Huawei, the Chinese company which has been infamous for hacking and data theft, hacked 200 Nepali websites, including some government websites, reported Economic Times.
The Nepalese people held protest in front of Huawei office and shouted anti-China, anti-Huawei slogans. The protesters also tried to enter Huawei’s office but were arrested by the police.
In August this year, four Chinese Nationals namely Zhen Xianjdong, Zhang Donghui, Quan Zhan Peng and Qin Liyang of China’s Hubei province were arrested from Tribhuwan International Airport in Kathmandu.
“They were involved in trafficking Nepali girls and women to China as brides,” said Senior Superintendent of Police Ishwar Babu Karki. “At first, we arrested two Chinese — Quan and Qin with two Nepali brides from the Tribhuwan International Airport on Wednesday as suspicion grew over them. We later came to know about the racket. We arrested the eight others and rescued five victims,” he added.
The Chinese operatives promised to provide lucrative to trap women from rural parts of Nepal. The people in China are ready to pay millions for brides as they are able to marry given skewed sex ration in China.
Profit and self-interest are supreme to China. Its policies in the Himalayan country are harmful to the interest of the people, but the Communist government is protecting Chinese companies. The Chinese embassy in Nepal has got a free hand in Nepal and they are protecting Chinese interest by all possible means. The Communist government is whitewashing the illegal activities like hacking, data theft, bride trafficking, and land encroachment.
