Locals demand review of Gandak Treaty with India


Birgunj: Stakeholders have demanded immediate review of the Gandak Treaty signed between Nepal and India saying that it was against the principles of justice and equability.

At an interaction organized by the Dibya Youth Club and Arunodaya Youth Club Parsa  with the main slogan  ‘Water rights, our concern’, here  on Friday,  they said the  treaty was signed  without provision for review and time frame and the water was distributed unjustifiably.

Nepal had to be deprived of the water resource by using its own capital and technology from the past treaty and therefore should be reviewed, they demanded.

India takes 32,000 cusecs of water for irrigation in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh through the treaty and leaves only 1,216 cusecs of water for Bara, Parsa, Rautahat and Nawalparasi districts of Nepal.

Nepal so far could only use 650 cusecs of water in the maximum. The treaty called Gandak Irrigation and Power Project Treaty was signed between Nepal and India in 2016 BS (1959) with the main objective of irrigation, power development and flood control. RSS
