Indian damn in no man’s land
RAJBIRAJ, March 29: As a protest against the dam under construction at the no man’s land, media persons of Saptari organized a march up to the borderline this morning.
The media persons took a walk in a procession at 6:00 this morning in order to exert pressure on the sides concerned to stop the construction in the twilight zone.
The dam is being constructed by the Indian side, and is likely to submerge a large number VDCs in Nepal.
The dam under construction at the Khando and Jita rivers in Kunauli on the bordering region by the India side is likely to inundate Launiya, Tilathi, Koiladi, Sakarpur, Lalapatti and Basain VDCs of Saptari, say the locals.
The locals here have also charged the Indian side of removing the 223/13 number border pillar on the no man’s land falling near Tilathi VDC of Saptari.
Also marking the 57th year of founding of the Federation of the Nepali Journalists (FNJ), the media persons will cover 11 kilometers and hold an interaction upon reaching the no man’s land, said FNJ, Saptari President Dhirendra Prasad Shah.
The media persons have also called the authorities concerned to renovate the dilapidated Rajbiraj-Kunali road and the parties to complete the peace process and the new constitution on time. RSS
