DHARAMSHALA, Nov. 12: Following a report by the Nepalese government’s Survey Department that said China has encroached upon 36 hectares of Nepalese land, protestors in few districts came on the streets on Monday against the encroachment shouting slogans and even burning effigy of the Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Nepalese protestors in Saptari, Bardiya, Kapilvastu districts held banners that condemned the Chinese encroachment and chanted slogans such as “Go back China and Return Nepali land” during the protests, according to Nepalese online news portal Khabarhub.

The data released by the Survey Dept. revealed that around six hectares of land in the Bhagdare river in Humla district and four hectares of land in Karnali district have been encroached upon, and included in Tibet’s Purang area. Around six hectares of Nepali land in Sanjen river and Jambhu Khola of Rasuwa, have now been included into Kyirong in southern Tibet. In Sankhuwasabha, nine hectares of land have been encroached due to the road expansion in the autonomous region of Tibet where areas around Kamukhola, Arun river and Sumjung river have now fallen into Chinese hands.

China has also encroached upon more than 10 hectares of land in Sindhupalchowk district’s Bhotekoshi and Kharanekhola areas, which are now under Nyalam area of Tibet, the report said adding that failure to intervene by the Nepalese government would result in losing more than 100 hectares.

The ruling party in Kathmandu, the Nepal Communist Party and its leadership including Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli who are seen to be increasingly pro-China and cautious of not riling its powerful neighbour, have not condemned the encroachment. Opposition parties and the common people of Nepal on the other hand have expressed their disappointment over the development.
