Nepali Congress lawmaker of Karnali Province Jeevan Bahadur Shahi has expressed anger at the Government of Nepal for not even feeling the need to investigate allegation of Chinese encroachment of Nepali land in Humla district.

Shahi, who had led the NC Parliamentary monitoring team’s visit to Nepal’s border with China in Humla, trekked for 11 days and found that China had encroached Nepali land in multiple places in the border area. He said his team had concluded that the Chinese side had encroached 60 to 70 hectare Nepali land on the border.

Shahi said China had constructed at least nine buildings on Nepali land in Lapcha Limi area of Namkha Rural Municipality of Humla district. He said the Chinese side had encroached areas up to three kilometres where the Nepali side had built a road 10 years ago. “Ten years ago, the Chinese side did not object to our road construction. They rather showed us where the border lay, now they claim the area to be their territory. How can we accept their claim,” Shahi wondered.
