While Nepal’s Prime Minister is busy in changing map of regions such as Kalapani, Lipulekh, and Limpiyadhura against India, China reportedly captured Rui village in North Gorkha region of Nepal, according to newspaper, Khabarhub.
The Rui village of Gorkha, which comes under the Rui Bhot of Gorkha, has now come under the occupation of Tibet, the autonomous region of China.
The village consisting 72 households and still included in the map, but the area is under Chinese control as border pillars have moved to validate the encroachment.
According to the Land Revenue Office Gorkha, the office still has the record of the revenues collected from the inhabitants of Rui village.
“The details of the revenues paid by the inhabitants of Rui Bhot areas is still safe in the Land Revenue Office, in the file no. 1,” an assistant staff at the Land Revenue Office Gorkha said, “The record section of the office has the records of the revenues submitted by the people from Athara Saya Khola to Rui Bhot.”
Historian Ramesh Dhungel says that Rui and Teigha villages were in the northern part of Gorkha district.
“Rui Gaun is part of Nepal,” Dhungel said, adding, “Neither Nepal lost it in war nor it was subject to any special agreement or contract to let it belong to Tibet; Nepal lost both Rui and Tegha villages due to the negligence at the time of fixing pillars.”
PM KP Oli has taken a sudden and irrelevant stand against India over Kalapani, Lipulekh, and Limpiyadhura regions, but as of now Oli is quite against this illegal annexation by China.
