Cordial relations between Nepal and China

The great leader of China, Mao Ze Dong, made his country recognized by the
rest of the world fighting against imperial powers. Modifying (improving)
the same policy, another leader Deng Xiaoping brought changes in Chinese
communism. Even after the death of Deng Xiaoping, his Chinese policy was
continued and China emerged as a global power. China, not only in the field
of trade and business, was able to develop science, multilateral natural and
cultural development. Adopting the path of open policy, China has stood
against imperialism in the globe.

China provided cooperation to Nepal in many sectors, such as construction of
the Araniko Highway, Prithvi Highway, Ringroad, Kathmandu-Bhaktapur highway
and others. Establishment of the Trolley Bus, Basbanry Tannery Industry,
Harisiddhi Brick industry, Sunkoshi Hydropower Project, store houses in
Kathamndu and Birgunj, Bhaktapur Brick Industry, Narayanghat-Gorkha road,
Hetauda Textiles among others. Unlike India, China neither humiliated nor
black-mailed Nepal. After 1990, sadly as the Nepali Congress formed the
government, Girija Prasad Koirala, the then prime minister, disposed off
China gifted such industries at the cheapest price. This all happened under
the instruction of India. Besides, the then PM Koirala is responsible in
spoiling other industries as well which contributed unemployment problem in
Nepal. Because of such pro-Indian leaders in Nepal, the country is

Still we are hopeful for the continued cooperation of China. The urgent need
of the hour is to increase cooperation in trade and transport between China
and Nepal. This can be facilitated by constructing a mountainous highway in
Nepal from Taplejung to Darchula through Ramechhap and the upper regions of
Pokhara and Kalikot. The widening network of Chinese railways can also be
valuably utilized in this context as well. China should have liberal thought
in order to enhance its trade and even to exhibit its existence in the
region through its railways system. China should expand the railways to
south Asian countries including Nepal and also to Europe. If so, China will
teach a lesson to the so called imperialistic powers. And furthermore, it
will give a strong message that China is friendly to the peace loving
countries of the world. This great contribution of China will contribute in
connecting South Asian countries, including Nepal, to Europe.

In the name of the United Nations, America is fermenting a conspiracy to
destroy China by advocating 'Free Tibet' and for which they are making Nepal
a base area. In Nepal, with respect to the one China policy, the King had
closed Dalai Lama's office in Nepal. Being furious with Nepal, America took
the path republic in Nepal. On the other hand, India with the consent of the
US and the UN, helped in establishing the secular and so called federal
republic of Nepal. China must not forget that the Nepalese monarch is the
only guarantee for both China’s and Nepal's security. The Nepalese monarchy
had established itself as an institution fighting against imperialism.
Therefore imperialistic powers have been making several conspiracies against
the Nepalese monarchy.

If a transit channel between Nepal and China exists, Nepal will largely
benefit from this, for which, the railway being built in China must be used.
The railway track which was built from Beijing to Lhasa has been operating
since 2007. Now China must also mull over how it can benefit from the
railway in terms of business expansion and identity here. China should
extend its railway lines to Nepal and other South Asian nations, thus, and
be able to counteract against the imperialist and colonialist nations, but
at the same time establish friendly ties with peace loving nations like
Nepal. The railway will also establish China as a bridge between the smaller
nations of South Asia, including Nepal, and Europe. Nepal must also embark
with internal and foreign support to build a highway from Taplejung to
Darchula. Only then, Nepal will be able to recuperate its status as a
beautiful, peaceful and great nation.

The construction of railways can also help a country to liberate itself from
foreign intervention. After the railway from Lhasa to Kathmandu via Khasa is
built, a railway line from Lhasa to Kerung must also be constructed.
Trailing by the bank of the Bhramhaputra River, the distance from Lhasa to
Kerung is almost 1000 kilometers. The distance from Kerung to Nepal’s Rasuwa
is 20/22 kilometers. Following the line from Lhasa to Kerung, the distance
from Laajya of Tibet to Kimathanka of Sankhuwasabha is 100-150 kilometers.
The distance to Khasa following the same line is 50-75 kilometer. The
distance from Khasa to Kathmandu via Tatopani is 120/130 kilometers. If the
railway line is built along the bank of Trishuli River, the distance from
Kerung Rasuwagadi to Bharatpur Gaidakot via Dhading is 300 kilometers. After
the railway is built in Kerung, Rasuwa, Khasa, Tatopani and to Kimantha from
Lajya of China, the areas will be developed. It is imperative to form a high
level railway building committee between Nepal and China with a new package
for transit.

If the railway line reaches Kerung, petroleum products can be brought from
Kazakhstan and Russia, while gas can be purchased from Uzbekistan. Nepali
products can be sold in the European nations and Russia.

Nepalese King Birendra and Bangladesi President Gen Zia Ul Rehman
established the South Asian Association of Regional Cooperation (SAARC) with
the intension to prevent the interventions of India on small neighboring
countries of Mr. Prasai- welcoming Dang Xiaoping in Nepal this region. But
India with the support of SAARC is still trying to keep Nepal, Bangladesh,
Sri Lanka under its control. This can not be tolerated. Regarding the
matter, my clear viewpoint is ''Nepal should have courage to abandon the
membership of SAARC and go ahead with the cooperation of China and other
friendly countries. Nepal shall not sacrifice its self pride to India in the
name of SAARC..”

Afghanistan has a transportation treaty with Iran, Pakistan and Russia. The
same sort of treaty exists between Laos Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam.
Currently due to Trade and Transportation treaty, Nepal seems to be
dependent on India. However as railways and its link ways will be expanded,
Nepal's contact with the rest of the world will be increased through the
railway linkages with Pakistan and Bangladesh. As a result, Nepal will get
rid of Indian intervention. Nepalese people are also always in favour of

Deng XiaopingThe writer Mr. Prasai was welcoming to the great leader Deng

The author had an opportunity to welcome Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping in
Kathmandu in Feb 1977. Being impressed with his open minded ideas, we
Nepalese were interested in the sustainable and liberal policy of China.
During the visit of the Chinese leader, he had stated 'Nepal is rich with
its long history and culture. The Nepalese people love independence and
freedom. Nepal has exhibited active contribution in the struggle against
imperialism." Like Nepal achieved integrated development within 10 years
period under the leadership of King Mahendra, China developed unbelievably
by adopting the sustainable open liberal policy under the leadership of Deng
Xiaoping. But very sadly, the movement for Democracy disturbed this trend
several times. But the revolutionary leaders couldn't do anything for the
country and democracy. The most unfortunate fact is that the majority of our
political leaders (Congress ( Girija and his agents) UML (Madhab Nepal,
Jhalanath, Bamdev) and Maoist ( Prachanda, Baburam Bhattarai, Narayan Kaji)
are all Indian agents. It is worthless to expect anything from these leaders
to save our nationality and independence.

In the present, the politics of Nepal has been corrupted. This is because
the leaders, who were goonda and who looted the common people, joined
politics. In the past, Congress leader Mr Girija hijacked an aero-plane,
incited people to murder and printed fake bank notes in India. This led for
the institutionalizing of corruption and kidnapping in the country. UML
leaders too slaughtered many Nepalese people. The Maoists murdered 15000
common people and police and army personnel and also destroyed physical
infrastructure of the country. They have not answered why they did this,
even when they came to power. The Nepalese Communists, including the Maoist
are getting lost by their confused and notorious activities. These are hated
politicians as they have tried to grab the state power. It is useless for
the Nepali people to have any hopes from such leaders who are destroying the
unity symbols of Nepal viz. monarchy, Hindu kingdom, and Nepalese
identities. Currently, there are traitors in Nepal. This is the right time
when all nationalist powers- Nepalese people, nationalists of all parties,
the court, security sources, national army, bureaucrats, labourers,
peasants, and the King as well, be ready to make sacrifices in order to
prevent the country from sinking.
