Former president Ram Baran Yadav has termed the recent decision made by the government to export sand, gravel, rocks, pebbles, and other river-borne materials to nearby countries by exploiting Chure as “treasonous”.

Ex-president Yadav spoke about the importance of Chure by calling it a lifeline for Nepalese, especially for those who live in terai. Since 2014, Chure has been listed as a conservation zone, which means any kind of activity that can cause harm to the environment is strictly prohibited by law. Extraction of aggregates is therefore unlawful and treasonous. Illegal theft of sand and rocks from Chure has been going on for a long time and it even happens today, and this decision from the government itself to exploit Chure will only lead to more problems in the future.

The Chure range that covers 13 percent of Nepal’s total territory extends in 33 districts. The water flowing from the Himalayas is absorbed by Chure and the same water is passed on to terai. Yadav talked about how terai used to get sufficient water in the past to support agriculture, animal husbandry, and fish farming. He said that things have changed significantly today and excavation of rocks and sand from Chure is one of many reasons for the present condition of terai.

Yadav boldly said that the decision was made for the sake of the personal interest of authorities to remain in power by feeding local leaders who are involved in crusher business and was not in the national interest.

The decision to exploit Chure for exporting sand. pebbles, rocks, and stones to neighboring nations was recently made by the government in the hope to combat the ever-increasing trade deficit of Nepal, this controversial decision has received utter criticism from not just Yadav but many others.
