“The campaign is not to seize other’s land, but to restore Nepal’s land seized by others,” said UCPN (M) chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ while addressing a rally at Brahmadev Bazaar in Kanchanpur district of far-western Nepal bordering India.

The former prime minister also stated that the present campaign would continue till India returns all ‘encroached’ land.
There are nearly four dozen places on the Indo-Nepal border where there is tension over alleged land grab by India.

The biggest bone of contention is a 75 square kilometer area at Kalapani in Darchula district in far-western Nepal where borders of India, Nepal and China meet.

This area has been under Indian occupation since the 1962 Indo-China war.

While Prachanda launched the campaign at Kanchanpur, other leaders like Baburam Bhattarai and Mohan Vaidya addressed rallies at Susta in Nawalparasi district and Pashupati Nagar in Ilam.
