Backstabbing Nepal in the back, China has illegally constructed villages and towers in the Humal district of Nepal and now Chinese Media is claiming its authority over the land.
Chinese government-controlled mouthpiece Global Times recently released a statement saying that the newly-built village is in Tibet Autonomous Region and not on the “encroached” land of Nepal. Also, Beijing has suspended the movement of Nepalese and food-laden trucks into the Humla district.
However, people in Nepal are protesting against the Chinese claim and also the Oli government for its inaction and literally giving away their land to China.
Leader of the opposition, Jivan Bahadur Shahi, whose home district is Humla, has accused the Oli government of inaction. He said that Nepalese are suffering due to the Chinese presence in the area.
Meanwhile, the Nepal government’s continuous to be a puppet of China and has denied any such report. Shahi said that China has erected pillars at the China-Nepal border without taking the permission of Nepal officials, which is compulsory.
“The Junge Pillar 12 has been recently erected by China. The government officials say they have not been consulted about such issues. The Pillars 5.1 and 6.1 have been enclosed as there are Chinese security forces,” ANI quoted Shahi as saying.
Quoting the encroachment as China’s “usual strategy”, strategic thinker Brahma Chellaney said, “China’s usual strategy is to furtively encroach on another nation’s territory and then claim that the territory has been part of China since ancient times. But in a new twist to its incursions, it builds a village on Nepal’s land and then redraws the map.”
A TOI report earlier also claimed that China was seen buildings Namkhya village in the Humla district of Nepal and has barred locals from entering the area.
