Bhutanese refugees deserve to go home

November 6, 2018 02:30 am

Little more than 6,000 Bhutanese refugees are currently living in Beldangi and Shanischare in eastern Nepal. They refused resettlement in third countries, and want to go home in Bhutan or settle down here in Nepal. About 116,000 of Bhutanese refugees have been resettled in the United States and Europe. Of them, 96,148 were resettled in the United States alone. The government of Nepal should expedite talks with the new government of Lotay Tshering in Bhutan. It has been more than three decades since the refugees started living in camps in Nepal.
