Koirala’s proposal comes at a time when most political parties – both ruling and the opposition – have criticized the KP Oli-led government for failing to take effective steps against the encroachment of Nepali land.

She also said that merely resorting to nationalist rants will not help resolve the issue. “We need to come up with solution,” she said.

NC leader Koirala also suggested that Bangladesh can be an alternative to India for transit.
