They have also mentioned that Nepal and China share 141,488 sq. km long border and 98 border pillars claiming that some of the border pillars are missing and some have been shifted towards Nepal.

“More than 64 hectares of have been encroached upon land in Dolakha, Humla, Sindhupalchowk, Sankhuwasabha, Gorkha ad Rasuwa,” a document said.

According to the document, Pillar 37 and 38 of Gorkha are missing whereas pillar 35 is shifted inside Nepal so as to let Northern Gorkha’s Rui village in the Chinese territory.

“The shifting of the pillars has kept Nepal’s Rui Gaun on the Tibetan side,” the commitment letter says. “Some 72 households of Rui Gaun of Gorkha and 18 houses of Darchula have fallen victim of the Chinese encroachment,” the lawmakers said.
