Call to regulate open border

Former survey official and border expert Buddhi Narayan Shrestha in his lead article for Nagarik argues that it is the high time Nepal and India regulated the open border between them. Taking the reported entry of hundreds of Rohingya refugees in Nepal into consideration as a case in point, Shrestha has said the open border can put the both countries into a number of problems.

“Besides these, Nigerian, Ethiopian and Sudanese refugees occasionally roam in Kathmandu. What happens if the number of Rohingyas also goes up to the level of Bhutanese? The government should be cautious on time,” he argues, “Not only refugees, but other terrorists also enter either of the country through open border. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been repeatedly raising the issue that undesired elements have been misusing the open border whenever Nepali prime ministers visit him.”

Shrestha adds that the influence of Islamic State gradually expanding into the Asian region as the group has already carried out a number of attacks in Pakistan and Bangladesh, arguing the open border between Nepal and India might facilitate their entrance to the country.

Therefore, he suggests Nepalis and Indians be asked to show their identification whenever they use the open border.

  1. नेपाल भारत सीमा खुला राखनु दुबै देशको लागी सुरक्षित छैन । सीमा वारपार गर्दा कुनै एक राष्ट्रीय परिचय पत्र देखाऊनु पर्ने ब्यावस्था हुनुपर्छ र त्यों समय ढीला भई सक़्यो । तुरंत regulated border ब्यवस्थापन हुनु पर्ने कुराम बुद्धि नारायण जी संग सहमत छु।
