Limbuwan declared independent state (BREAKING NEWS)

By Bhola B Rana

Kathmandu, 25 March: Upper Kirat Limbuwan National Front has declared nine districts north of Arun river an independent state, Ghatana ra Bichar reports.
Front General Secretary Shemhing Yakthumba said Kirat Pradesh (Limbuwan) was integrated after an agreement with King Prithvinarayan Shah following Nepal’s unification.
Now that monarchy has ended, the treaty has automatically ceased to exist, he said adding Limbuwan is now automatically independent.
Independence was declared this week and the first national conference that was to be held in Jhapa last Monday was banned by Nepal government.
Preparations are being made for strong resistance describing the government move as interference in an independent state’s affairs.
The Front has written to President Dr Ram Baran Yadav proposing establishing diplomatic relations.
Three Limbuwan activists arrested in Jhapa Monday have been charged for treason.
