Kathmandu, September 24
The main opposition party, Nepali Congress, on Thursday, says the government’s recent clarification that China has not encroached on the Nepali land as reported on media was a rush.
The opposition party suggests the government should have waited for the report of district bureaucrats of Humla, who are currently visiting the site, before making any claim.
In a statement today, the party’s spokesperson Bishwa Prakash Sharma says, “Making the government’s opinion public when a team comprising Chief District Officer and officials of Nepal Army and Nepal Police is continuing its onsite study does not look appropriate.”
Since a border pillar has been found on Wednesday, only connecting it with another border pillar will conclude if the disputed site where China has constructed nine buildings lies on Nepali or Chinese side, states the party.
Further, the party’s central working committee member Jeevan Bahadur Shahi is also studying the issue, Sharma says.
