People's Review - - NEWS - By Our Re­porter

Ras­triya Ja­garan Par­ishad has sub­mit­ted a mem­o­ran­dum let­ter to Prime Min­is­ter KP Sharma Oli draw­ing his at­ten­tion on Nepal's pri­or­ity agen­das be­fore his de­par­ture to Bei­jing. Sad­hya Ba­hadur Bhan­dari, co­or­di­na­tor of the Par­ishad, handed over the mem­o­ran­dum to PM Oli. It is stated in the mem­o­ran­dum let­ter, "While you had ar­rived at sev­eral agree­ments of mo­men­tous im­por­tance to our coun­try dur­ing your ear­lier visit to China such as trade and tran­sit fa­cil­i­ties to the sea, we urge that nec­es­sary pro­to­cols be signed with that great north­ern neigh­bour so that such vi­tally sig­nif­i­cant agree­ments be­come op­er­a­tional as soon as pos­si­ble." Other points stated in the mem­o­ran­dum are to make clear to the Chi­nese coun­ter­part about the In­dian oc­cu­pa­tion on Lipu Lekh re­gion of Nepal; con­struc­tion of Nepal-China cross-bor­der rail­way down to Lumbini; seek­ing Chi­nese sup­port for in­te­grated de­vel­op­ment of our north­ern re­gions that should also in­clude im­proved con­nec­tiv­ity and eco­nomic transactions with China's towns across the bor­der; ex­plor­ing pos­si­bil­ity of ac­cess­ing the labour mar­ket in China. The mem­o­ran­dum is signed by Sad­hya Ba­hadur Bhan­dari, Hi­ran­nya Lal Shrestha, Bi­hari Kr­ishna Shrestha, Shi­tal Babu Regmi, Yubraj Pandey, Bud­dhi Narayan Shrestha, Prof. Dr. Suren­dra K.C., Prof. Dr. Bhuba Pd.
