NAWALPARASI, Aug 26: Efforts made by the Indian side to expand road in the disputed territory of Susta has led to a dispute.
The dispute has resurfaced by the Nepali side stopped the Indian side from expanding the road in the area. It may be noted that the two sides had agreed in 2064 B.S. to not carry out any work, including building roads or vegetation in the disputed land in Susta.
However, the Indian side has violated the agreement by trying to expand road in the area, said Vice-chair of the Save Susta Campaign Adam Khan.
The act of the Indian side to expand road in the disputed territory has become a problem of the residents of Susta, said Chair of Susta Rural Municipality Ram Prasad Pandey.
Meanwhile, Chief District Officer Devendra Lamichhane has said that initiative has been taken to resolve the problem through facilitation by the security agencies of the two countries at the local level. RSS
