People from various districts of the provinces of Lumbini and Karnali have begun to travel to India for work after the festivals.
People have crossed the Jamunaha border and have been going to India for the past few days. People went to different cities of India to work after the Nepal-India border opened. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the border was closed for a long time.
According to In-charge Bishnu Giri at the Jamunaha Area Police Office, about 200 Nepalese travelled daily from the Jamunaha border point to India, reported The Himalayan Times. He said the border police kept records of people going to India for work and care. Giri added that the Nepalese could easily cross the border to India. “We will solve the problems, if any, in coordination with Indian security, when the people head to India,” he said.
Gopal BK of Surkhet said they were forced to leave for India to earn money, as there was no alternative to make the ends meet.
He said the government had not provided them with anything during the lockout period. “We were heading towards Kalapahad because of our compulsion,” he said.
Nepalese staff go to India for seasonal work and come back to celebrate festivals.
Another worker, Karna Bahadur Rawal of Jajarkot, said they had to go to India amid difficulties because they could not get a job in the country. “We’re being forced to go to India to run the family,” he said.
People from Rukum, Rolpa, Jajarkot, Dailekh and Salyan, among other districts of the province of Karnali, went to India to work.
Police said that Nepalese people mostly go to Kalapahad and Shimla to work, among other places in India. Police said that Nepalese people had returned to their homes after coronavirus spread to India.
