A Message to Minister for Health of Nepal Gagan Thapa

Posted by Anup Baral August 29, 2016 :
The two countries are revisiting the issue after seven years. The previous mandate, which was in effect from 1981 to 2007, saw the countries settle 97 percent of border discrepancies using modern technology. The topic of the border with India is a hot-button issue in Nepal; many feel that the current border does not protect Nepali sovereignty. There are a couple swathes of land that both countries claim.On the heels of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s reinvigorated regional diplomacy, representatives from the Indian and Nepali survey offices sat down this week in Kathmandu, Nepal to work out border disputes that have risen as the frontiers between the two countries become increasingly blurry. India’s commitment to keep an open and accurate border is another indicator of Modi’s interest in regional security. Modi’s attaché arranged the talks when they visited Kathmandu in August. Youth leader of Nepali Congress Gagan Thapa was born in 1977 in Solukhumbu. He is the son of Mahendra Kumar Thapa and Rameshwari Thapa. Educated from Kathmandu's Siddhartha Banasthali High School, Thapa holds a Master's Degree in Sociology. He is contesting from Kathmandu-4 in the CA Election 2013 representing Nepali Congress. He began his political career in 1990. He was the general secretary of the NC's student wing Nepal Student Union since 2003 till 2005. Known for his oratory skills, Thapa came into public attention with his aggressive speeches during the movement against the direct rule of the then King Gyanendra. He also criticizes his own party leaders. NC inducted Thapa to the CA in 2008 from PR system. He is currently a central member of the NC. Married to the daughter of NC leader Arjun Narsingh KC, Thapa has a daughter. Thapa has formed a group for agricultural activities and runs a meat shop in Kathmandu.
