Although Nepal government has taken several initiatives to resolve Indo-Nepal dispute and return the land of Kalapani, Lipulek, and Limpiyadhura encroached by neighboring India, there is no positive response for the talk from the Indian side. This information has been provided in the meeting of the Standing Committee of the ruling Communist Party of Nepal (CPN) held on 26th June 2020.
Pradip Gyawali, who was also a Foreign minister and a member of the Committee has declared that China has no relation to this border issue. Gyawali has also deliberated that all the news from India alleging China playing role in Indo-Nepal dispute are not true. Nepal has been continuously claiming that Nepalese are not the poppet of China and not even India. Nepal is a sovereign country so both of the neighboring nations do not have any rights to interfere in the internal affair of Nepal.
Eighteen members of the standing committee had expressed their views in the meeting. They shared their views on Indo-Nepal dispute on border issues and solutions. On the first day of the meeting held at the PM’s residence in Baluwatar, Chairman KP Sharma Oli and Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ expressed their views on the current situation in the meeting.
In the second meeting, Lilamani Pokhrel, Matrika Yadav, Dev Gurung, Gokarna Bista, Shankar Pokhrel, Pampha Bhusal, Chhabilal Bishwakarma, Beduram Bhusal, Raghuvir Mahaseth, Amrit Kumar Bohara, Bhim Rawal, Ashtalakshmi Shakya, Bhim Acharya, Keshav Badal, Ganesh Sah, Mukunda Neupane and Narayan Kaji Shrestha have expressed their views.
The meeting also included the discussion on control, prevention, and treatment of COVID-19, Indo-Nepal dispute and measures taken by Nepal, overall review of government work, review of party work, and completion of remaining work of organizational unity, American Assistance Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) and various agendas. Among the various items on the agenda, the participants also put forward the issues such as inhumane incidents that took place in Rukum West on May 26, the Citizenship Bill, and the allowances of federal parliamentarians.
During the meeting, General Secretary Bishnu Prasad Poudel informed that he would not attend the meeting due to the busy schedule of the party Chairman and Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli. Therefore, he suggested all the members conduct meetings appropriately although he could not attend the meeting. The meeting on 26th June was also chaired by another chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’. The next meeting of the Standing Committee will be held on Saturday 27th June at 11:00 AM.
