Morang : According to the media, Rastriya Ekata Abhiyan, a civil society group in Nepal, showed up in Biratnagar, Morang, on Thursday to demonstrate against China.
Several Nepali traders have been affected by China's unofficial blockade at border points caused by Chinese interference in Nepal's internal affairs, and excessive interference by China in Nepal's internal affairs.
Protesters marched from Mahendra Chowk to Bhatta Chowk in Biratnagar, raising slogans against Chinese expansion and undue influence within the country's political elite. They burned pictures of Chinese President Xi Jinping during the march.
In a statement, Morang civil society group coordinator Jitendra Yadav explained that the protest was being held to draw attention to China's influence over Nepal's internal affairs.
Rastriya Ekata Abhiyan coordinator Binay Yadav said the Chinese government's intelligence agency, Ministry of State Security (MSS), was intensifying its presence in Nepal.
He also decried China's unofficial blockade at border points, and the northern neighbour not allowing Nepali medical students, whose future hangs in the balance, to return, among other issues, the report said.
