Neighbors are to blame for the melting Himalayas: UML Chair Oli

“Nepal is proud to the contribution to environmental protection,” said Oli, “other countries in the world have maintained at most 30 percent of forests. However, we have protected 46 percent of the forests. 30 percent is our dense forest area. Although we are fully aware of the environment, the reason why the mountains look black and the snow does not fall on the mountains is due to the global community.”

He remarked that the wheat chaff flew from the neighborhood and its dust and smoke reached the mountains.
