An open letter to World’s Medias, World’s Organizations and Concerned Authorities
I am a dignified Nepali residing in the lap of Himalayas embracing multiple cultures and traditions. This land of Mt. Everest and The land of Buddha, the gem of Asia, is an independent sovereign nation with an area of 147,181 square kilometers and almost 30 million residents. I represent the unified voices of millions of Nepalese in this letter and want world to know about Nepal’s current situation.
Nepal got its first democratic constitution on Sept. 20, 2015, which was drafted by the representatives of over 90 percentage of people residing in Nepal. It is the moment of joy for all the Nepalese. But our so-called good neighbor was unhappy to see us proceed towards development and imposed a threat to Nepal’s constitution by imposing a blockade. India, the so-called largest democratic nation, played its foul game in order to halt the promulgation of constitution in Nepal, sending off its special representatives days before and days after implementation of constitution In Nepal. Nepalese couldn’t afford to wait longer to implement the new constitution as it was demanded for almost 70 years, the new laws of the general Nepalese people. The blockade is still going on. Nepal buys its major supplies including fuels, clothes, medicines, foods etc from India.
The blockade, which India had denied earlier was proved by Indian Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) ,which instructed its agencies to lift the unofficial blockade against Nepal, on Oct 3,2015. But the blockage is still continued until today, Oct. 5, 2015. The Indian Oil Corporation has fooled Nepalese Oil Corporation as it hasn’t allowed our trunks to load the fuels which is an essentials at this moment. This so-called blockade removal by India is taken as a step to restrict Nepal to stop treaties with China as China transit route was made accessible on Oct. 2, 2015. India mustn’t forget that Nepal is only using trade route of India and Nepal buys the fuels which is at peak of the crisis, compelling students to restrict going to schools, ambulances, publics to offices and so on.
The Madhesi leaders(the representative of Terai residents), who are in protest regarding Nepal’s constitution have put forward a strike in no man’s land halting supplies In Nepal. They are in Indian part of land and taking shelters in India troubling millions of sick people to get medicines, publics to fuels and traders to business. Let world know that Nepal has an Open border with India and this protest is going on places bordering India which depicts the notions of these parties. Many Indians join the protest and trouble Nepalese, as per the locals residing in those places. 40 are killed during this protest, and 8 police officials and a small child were the first to be killed brutally by the protesters. The violence has started and reached to the peak once the Madhesi leaders declared a revenue of Rs. 5,000,000 to the deceased, the national hero recognizations and many others facilities if Mades(terai) is made separate state. They haven’t been given a penny, according to a family of a deceased. There has been a wrong statements being spread by the leaders to the uneducated people of Terai stating that they aren’t given rights in the new constitution which is totally a fake news. in fact, the present President, the vice presidents, the prime minister and many are a resident of Terai. The residents of Nepal doesn’t want Terai to be separated from Nepal as Nepal is posed a threat of losing lands like that Of Sikkim, Darjeeling’s and many other border encroachments area.
Nepal is a landlocked country, bodering to China to North and India to the remaining. A landlocked country has special rights of usage of sea transit for import of supplies using a third nation. If this right is prohibited by any third country, that nation must be liable for penalties. Well, India seems to be the master of games, and didn’t put an official tag of blockade. But, even a kid can understand the desire of India to intercept in Nepal’s constitution by imposing a threat of Blockade. We, Nepalese have protested every single day against India’s unnecessary imposition of Blockade and interference. #BackOffIndia was the trend that is on rise after India’s dirty play. We have had a good relation to India but if this sort of behavior continues in Nepal, the land of Gurkhas, might have to forget the harmony and ask the government of Nepal to seal the borders and introduce Visa system to India. India shouldn’t forget that Nepal is the only neighbor which has good relation with it, and surely knows about Pakistan and other nations.
United Nations Organization, European Union, Foreign Embassies, World Medias, and concerned authorities are requested to play a vital role without intruding Nepal’s sovereignty and internal affairs. No matter how small our nation is in the world map, our history, sovereignty and pride is no less to any other independent nation. We urge international medias to play a vital role in Nepal in this stage and focus the news about our blockade in World every moment until India removes blockade and assures no further interceptions in our internal issues. We ask for our rights in international organization about the transit and urge international law forum to investigate this issue and present India before World court. We don’t want India’s interference or any other nations interference in our internal issues. Few are said and many are left to be told. Once, world gets knowledge about dominance of India illegally in Nepal, we will speak more with you all. Please send your international reporters here in Nepal (except from Indian nations, as we could smell the biasness in few international news) and ask government of India about WTO treaty of landlocked countries.
Better seen than heard, come here international world and let justice be spoken! We, The Nepalese, known for our hospitality, love and peace would want world to come here and be a verdict for truth. A voice that speaks of millions of voices about Nepal!!! A humble request from Nepal!!
A responsible Nepali
