Kathmandu Nepal Communist Party (NCP) leader and Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has come in opposition to India after coming under the influence of China. Changing the map of the country, three places located in the border of India were shown in the border of our country. But the situation in his own country is becoming uncontrollable. Inflation is breaking the back of the common people and the prices of essential items like salt have reached 100 rupees. Large-scale protests have started against KP Oul in the country and there are speculations that the government may collapse at any moment.
Government is facing anger
The government of KP Oli in Nepal is facing huge public anger over the issue of Kovid-19 and corruption. The prices of salt, onion and tomato have reached Rs 100 in the country. Recently, there was firing on the India border along Bihar from Nepal Sentinel. An Indian citizen was killed in this incident. After this, India had increased the border on Nepal quite strongly. Nepal Watchdog handles the security of the border with India. Since the crackdown on action by India, the prices of everyday commodities in Nepal have skyrocketed.
From salt to sugar expensive
In Nepal, salt prices have reached Rs 100 per kg in the last few days. If you estimate in Indian currency, salt is currently being sold in Nepal at Rs 60 per kg. The rise in salt prices has turned the public against the government. Apart from salt, the prices of mustard oil, sugar, cumin, black pepper, pigeon pea, kerosene oil, chilli, gram dal, chaipatti, khesari dal etc. have also increased in price. Mustard oil is now selling at 800 Nepalese currency instead of 200 Nepalese currency per liter, while sugar is being sold at 400 Nepalese currency and tea leaf per 1000 Nepalese currency instead of 70 Nepalese currency per kg.
On June 12, there was firing from Nepal border at Sitamarhi, Bihar. Since then, the vigil has been increased by the Armed Border Force (SSB), which is guarding the Nepal border. The border of Nepal and India is open and has always been termed as a unique development in South Asia. Due to the openness and tightness of the border between India and Nepal, a large number of people have been crossing the border to buy and sell essential salmon. After a minor check at the border posts, they have been allowed to enter each other’s areas. During this time, they used to return after purchasing essential goods. But India had declared a lockdown recently amid rising cases of corona virus infection. Many restrictions were also imposed in Nepal.
Public said normal relations with India
It has become difficult for people to cross the border easily, due to which they are not able to purchase the essential goods. According to reports, a large number of people from Nepal’s Sirha district have reached Madhubani’s Ladniyan market. Here they could get the required goods at lower prices than in Nepal. But now after increasing vigilance and surveillance on the border, they are forced to pay more in their own country by paying higher prices. Due to the lack of access to goods from Indian regions, the price of essential goods in these border areas of Nepal is also skyrocketing and people are forced to buy these goods even at higher prices. In such a situation, the public is cursing its own government and repeatedly emphasizing on normalizing relations with India and strengthening mutual relations.
