China is using increased road construction in Tibet to encroach on  Nepali land and may set up border outposts in these areas in the future, says a Nepal government report accessed by ANI.

The report has been prepared by Survey Department of Agriculture Ministry. The report shows a list of 11 places out of which China has encroached 10 places comprise of 33 hectares of Nepal land by diverting the flow of rivers which was acting like a natural border.

The Chinese Government is widely expanding its road network in Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) “because of which some rivers and its tributaries have changed their course and are flowing towards Nepal. The flow of rivers is gradually receding the Nepalese territories and if it continues to remain so for some more time, it would cede the maximum portion of Nepal’s land towards TAR,” the document obtained by ANI states.

In Humla district Chinese construction works diverted Bagdare Khola river and Karnali river. 6 hectares of Nepali land has been seized in Rasuwa district as the construction work in Tibet brought diversions in Sinjen, Bhurjuk and Jambu Khola.

A total of 11 hectares of Nepal land is already claimed by China for “falling in Tibet” with the diversion of Kharane Khola and Bhote Kosi in Sindhupalchowk district.

Chinese road construction in Tibet also has diverted the flow of Sumjung, Kam Khola and Arun rivers of Sankhuwasabha district resulting in the encroachment on nine hectares of Nepali land.

The document has warned that Nepal would lose more lands if proper steps are not taken in time.

“If the receding of land by rivers continues, then hundreds of hectares naturally go towards TAR. There is a high possibility that over a period of time, China may develop Border Observation Post (BOP) of its armed police in those territories,” the document states.

This news broke out just after a report alleged China for capturing Rui village in North Gorkha region of Nepal.
