Even as egged on by China, Nepal has been escalating tension along the border, China has grabbed large swathes of Nepal’s territory, reports Zee Media. The incumbent Nepal Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, in a bid to divert domestic resentment against the China’s action, is whipping up anti-India sentiments through a sustained propaganda.
According to the report, China has occupied about 11 areas adjacent to Nepal. The Chinese occupation is being opposed in Nepal’s Rui village, adjoining Tibet, though the Nepalese government is turning a blind eye to the rising resentment, the report said. The Rui village with 72 houses is strategically located and so far Nepal has not surrendered this area to the Chinese. Grabbing the entire Nepal is in the larger expansionist scheme of China but the ruling elites in the Himalayan country is walking into the trap set by the dragon. China has also asserted its claims on several areas of Nepal, but it has been vehemently opposed in the Himalayan nation.
The government of Nepal has identified as many as 11 such places that China has so far occupied. The areas occupied by China in Nepal are:
1. China occupies 6 hectares of Bhagdare Khola in Humla district of Nepal
2. China occupies 4 hectares of Karnali river in Humla district of Nepal
3. China occupies 2 hectares of Sinjen Khola in Rasuwa district of Nepal
