Nepal: Angry protestors burn effigies of Chinese President Xi Jinping over border encroachment

Earlier this month, Nepal’s Survey Department had released data which showed Beijing attempted to encroach land for its road projects in at least four districts that share a border with China.

Nepal is on the boil as angry protesters in the country this week burnt the effigies of Chinese President Xi Jinping in a protest against encroachment by China of large swathes of Nepalese land. 

According to the reports, the protestors hit the streets of Saptari, Bardiya, Kapilvastu district on Monday and chanted slogans against China after a recent government report suggested that China had encroached on 36 hectares of land belonging to Nepal.

Young protestors with placards with messages like “Go back to China!” and “Return Nepali land” were spotted in various districts during the protests held on Monday, November 11.

Earlier this month, Nepal’s Survey Department had released data which showed Beijing attempted to encroach land for its road projects in at least four districts that share a border with China – Sankhuwasabha, Rasuwa, Sindhupalchowk and Humla. The government data suggested Nepal stood to lose a further several hundred hectares of land to Beijing.

Reportedly, the documents showed 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, which now falls in Tibet’s Furang area.

Likewise, China has also encroached six hectares of Nepali land in Sanjen river and Jambhu Khola of Rasuwa.

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 Tingisyan County area.

According to the ministry’s data, Nepal would lose several hundred hectares of land to encroachment by China. The survey data further showed that some places near Arun Khola, Kamu Khola and Sumjung are now parts of Tibet’s Tingisyan area.
