KATHMANDU, Jan 15: Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP) has expressed deep concerns over the road construction in Lipulekh by India and the announcement made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to further expand the road construction. The party has termed this a serious matter and an attack against Nepal’s sovereignty. 

Issuing a statement on Saturday, RPP mentioned that Lipuleks is Nepal’s territory. ‘The government of Nepal should protest against the encroachment of its territories. However, the silence of the government and the coalition while India is publicly announcing that it is building roads in Nepal’s territory is sad and mysterious,’ said the statement. 

RPP has demanded the Nepal government to immediately stop the construction work and find a solution to protect its land through dialogue with India at the diplomatic and political level.
