Responding to queries of local mediapersons in Jhapa, former deputy prime minister of Nepal K.P Sharma Oli expressed such an opinion on Friday at Damak, the Purbelitimes reports.

“It would be far better if refugees decide to resettle and then put pressure on Bhutanese government since Thimphu is nearer from New York ,” Oli said.

Claiming that life of resettled Bhutanese was going on smoothly UML leader, who led Nepalese team a number of times during bilateral talks with Bhutan, further said, “Their children will have secure future in America.”

However, he also stressed that demand of those refugees who have decided to remain in camps must not be ignored.

  1. I do not like this guy’s politics, but 100% agree with his above statement. It is universal truth!

    Let me repeat him “New York would be nearer than Jhapa to put pressure on the Government of Bhutan if exiled Bhutanese wish to repatriate with dignity and honor. ”

    If one of our fellow Bhutanese writer publish a article or story of Bhutan and its dirty politics, related to ethnic cleansing, it would be equivalent to 1000 demonstration in MECHI PUL !

  2. Mr. Oli is right. Please don’t stay back in the refugee camps. Education does not matter here. You will get job and you may have opportunity doing jobs with Head master, Teachers, Lecturers, Leaders and many more. This is the right time to come to the usa or other resettled countries. I was a high school dropped out in camp. I worked in building construction and sometimes even in road construction in western Nepal. Right now i am working in a cell phone company with one of the headmasters back in Nepal. I am proud of self and there are so many who are like me working with educated people.

  3. Much appreciated Oli ji – you’ve now understood the point!

    Talks could now be held in New York or London or at any other convenient venue and that also with the direct participation of the victims among others. I was disappointed with your previous statement after your US visit because I had faith in you and believed that you are our ardent supporter. We need people like you believe me. However, in the interim do not get won over / carried away – please. Sincerely
