Baidya’s group for regulated border


KATHMANDU — The patriotic people’s republic forum led by Mohan Baidya has stressed on regulated and controlled border between Nepal and India.

During a programme organized to make public the election manifesto Wednesday, leader Baidya said the 1950 Treaty of Peace and Friendship would be scrapped and efforts made for ensuring Nepal’s access to sea as per international law.

The front has shown concern over India-China trade agreement mentioning LipuLek as their territory. It would therefore make efforts to scrap it and bring back Nepali land encroached by India.

An independent and self-reliant economy would be developed; the development budget would be augmented; strict laws would be implemented to discourage corruption, the manifesto added.

The front is for bringing revolutionary land reforms, and education and health under full responsibility of the State.

Moreover, the Koshi, Gandaki and Integrated Mahakali treaties signed against national interest would be scrapped.

On the occasion, Chairman of the front CP Gajurel has said the front was an alternative force and it would be voted accordingly. “Although other political parties are participating in the election by supporting the present system, we’re against this system,” he informed.

The front has fielded candidacies from 92 constituencies for the election of House of Representatives and from 201 constituencies for the election of Provincial Parliament. RSS
