Watch: Anti-China protests intensify in Nepal against land encroachment
Anti-China protests are now intensifying in Kathmandu against illegal construction by the Chinese in Nepalese territory. Members of the Nepal Students union held protests in front of the Chinese embassy against Chinese construction in the northern Nepal district of Humla. Protesters were carrying banners asking China to return to their territory and raised slogans against China’s expansionist designs. The Nepalese foreign ministry had rejected reports in local media about illegal construction by the Chinese in the Humla district. The opposition has lashed out at the government for making comments even before a team of government officials visited the area and filed a field report on the developments. The release from the Ministry further claimed that the same sort of issue was raised in 2016 which turned down the earlier claims. Local media and since last week been carrying reports of land encroachment by China, which had illegally constructing 9 buildings in the Lapcha Bagar area of Humla District. This comes as China has been trying to change the status-quo in Ladakh as well. Watch the full video for all the details.
