KATHMANDU: Experts have urged the government to form a joint team of the two countries to investigate the Chinese land grab in Humla.

At a discussion program on Nepal’s dispute over the northern border organized by the Center for Social Inclusion and Federalism in Kathmandu, experts suggested that the two countries form a joint team to study the border dispute.

Former Director-General Department of Survey and geographer specializing on the border issues of Nepal Buddhi Narayan Shrestha suggested forming a joint task force comprising the Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Home Affairs, Defense and Land Management of the two countries to study the issue of border encroachment in Humla.

Shrestha said he could not say if the border has been encroached in Humla or not, adding that that the facts would be revealed after a joint study by the governments of the two countries.

He said that it has been made public that Pillar No. 57 in Dolakha has been moved towards Nepal and the government should also decide on the issue of six hectares of land that has gone to the Chinese side.

Former Director-General of the Survey Department Nagendra Jha also said that a task force should be formed to resolve the border dispute.

He said that there are 97 pillars on the Nepal-China border and despite the provision of inspection every 10 years, such work could not be done for 14 years.

Former Minister and Leader of the main opposition party, Nepali Congress, of Karnali Province Jeevan Bahadur Shahi said that he has evidence that China has encroached on Nepali land in Humla.

He further said that despite the fact that a memorandum was handed over to Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, the government has not done anything about it.

“I am ready to resign if China proves that the border has not been encroached in Humla,” he said.
