After a Nepal government report acknowledged that China has been using increased road construction in Tibet to encroach on its land, the opposition Nepali Congress has urged the KP Sharma Oli government to bring back the encroached territory by holding dialogue with Beijing.

In a letter to the secretary, House of Representatives, the opposition said that more than 64 hectares of land of various districts such as Dolakha, Humla, Sindhupalchowk, Gorkha and Rasuwa were encroached by China.

“As China has shifted pillar number 35 of Gorkha towards Nepal, Rui village lying in the northern part of Gorkha has been encroached by China and 72 households have now been under Tibet Autonomous Region of China. Similarly, 18 households located at Jiujiu of Darchula districts have been encroached by China,” the letter reads.

In a bid to seize complete control, China has been making inroads into several territories in Nepal. China has also occupied a village in Nepal and allegedly removed the boundary pillars to legitimise its annexation, top sources said.

The source said that the move by China has been a strategic one and has been done over the past two years. Nepal which has been making anti-India statements of late has completely surrendered to the Chinese, the officer also said.

This comes after Nepal in a controversial decision updated its political map which includes Indian areas of Kalapani, Lipulekh and Limpiyadhura in its territory with India slamming the move calling the new map “not based on historical facts and evidence.”

China’s recent aggression in the Himalayas proves that it is planning to accomplish its ‘Five Finger’ plan for Tibet with President of the Tibetan government in exile, Lobsang Sangay saying that after the occupation of Tibet, in the 60s, Chinese leadership made it clear that Tibet is the Palm and that they have to go for its 5 fingers – Ladakh, Nepal, Bhutan, Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh.

Linking the 2017 Doklam stand-off between India and China with this action plan, Sangay said China’s aggressive posturing in Ladakh is part of its long-term expansionist strategy.
