Nepal is now caught in China’s trap. Nepal’s Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli is only focusing to change the map against India and ignoring the Rui village in North Gorkha region in Nepal which has been captured by China.
Experts said that the Nepal government, intellectuals and citizens are busy talking about the Indian region in Kalapani, Lipu Lekh, and Limpiyadhura area, while the Nepal government has hidden the issue of encroachment of Chinese in Rui village. 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.
Due to the negligence of the Nepal government and higher government officials, the Chinese occupied the Rui village in North Gorkha region in Nepal. Although the Rui village area is still included in the map of Nepal, there is complete Chinese control over it. The boundary pillars of the village have been removed to legalise the encroachment.
According to the Land Revenue Office Gorkha, the office still has a record of revenue collected from the residents of the village of Rui. The details of the revenue paid by the residents of the Rui Bhot areas are still secured in file in the Land Revenue Office.
According to historian Ramesh Dhungel, the village of Rui and Teigha villages were in the northern part of Gorkha district. Dhungal said, “Rui village is a part of Nepal. Neither Nepal lost it in the war nor was it subject to any special agreement or contract related to Tibet. Nepal lost both Rui and Tegha villages due to negligence at the time of fixing the pillar.”
The historian Ramesh Dhungel described it as the extreme negligence of the Government of Nepal. He said, “India’s border is accessible. People walk around it. Therefore, border issues with India are visible to all, but the situation in the northern border with Tibet (the autonomous region of China) side of Nepal is very bad.”
