Kathmandu: A Nepali civic group named Rastriya Ekata Abhiyan recently demonstrated in Kathmandu against China for unilaterally laying a 150-meter-long wire fence within no-man’s land in Gorkha, media reports said.
The Ekata Abhiyan decried the northern neighbor’s move of erecting illegal structure at Ruila border of Chumanubri Rural Municipality-1 in Gorkha district, Khabarhub reported.
A protest rally started from Maitighar reached New Baneshwor chanting slogans against the northern neighbor, the news portal reported.
During the protest, demonstrators chanted slogans like “Go back China”, “Put an end to Chinese expansionism”, “Return encroached land”, “Halt Chinese intervention”, and “End the undeclared blockade against Nepal”, among others.
After reaching New Baneshwor, the rally turned into a corner meeting that was addressed by the Abhiyan’s national Chairperson Binay Yadav.
Chair Yadav expressed outrage against Nepali administration for being a mute spectator to Chinese construction of fences and physical infrastructure in no-man’s land.
Locals added that China also setup closed circuit television cameras in the area and has been monitoring the situation.
