Call upon the govts of Nepal and India to stop selling fruits and Veg without pesticide checking

विषादी चेकजाँच गर्न नदिनुलाई राष्ट्रवादसंग मात्र नजोडौं यो त कर्तव्य ज्यानसंग पनि सम्वन्धित छ-जानाजान विषादीयुक्त तरकारी जनताका भान्सामा पठाउन अनुमति दिनु अपराध हो? तपाई हाम्रो ज्यान माथि खेलवाड हुँदा चुप बस्ने कि केहि बोल्ने ? दबाब दिन ब्यापक हस्ताक्षर गरौँ - सेयर गरौँ - ५००० पुर्याएर संयुक्त रास्ट्रसंघ लगायत अन्तरास्ट्रिय मानवीय खाध्य सुरक्षामा सरोकार राख्ने सबैलाई गुहारौं ।

बेच्ने भारत र किन्ने नेपाल सरकार दुवैलाई जिम्मेवारी बनाउन जरुरि छ !

Some 3 weeks ago, more than 140 children lost their lives in Bihar state of India due to acute encephalitis syndrome. Experts say eating contaminated lychee fruit may have been responsible to cause that syndrome.

This incident is just an indication. Thousands of people are losing their lives every year in Nepal and India due to the consumption of low quality contaminated goods including medicine, alcohol, fruits, vegetables, etc. This is not because of the open border but serious negligence of the government of both the countries. Media report says both the countries have reached an agreement not to carry out quarantine check for fruits and vegetables at the borders between Nepal and India.

This demonstrates a breach of human rights and carelessness regarding the lives of millions of people of both countries who consume these fruits and vegetables. 

We call upon both the governments to be serious and have a proper check of the quality of these produce prior to the export and import particularly the fruits and vegetables.

We also urge the United Nations and other international agencies to monitor the situation and ensure that public health of the citizens of India and Nepal is protected. 

भारतबाट आउने तरकारी र फलफूलमा विषादी परीक्षण गर्ने निर्णयबाट सरकार पछि हटेको भारतलाई रिझाउन नेपालीका भान्छामा विषादीयुक्त तरकारी र फलफूल पठाउन दीएर सरकार ग़ैर जिम्मेदारीपूर्ण बनेको आवाज उठेको छ।

सरकारले भने भारतीय दबाबमा नभई नाकामा आवश्यक पूर्वाधार नभएकाले विषादी परीक्षण रोक्नु परेको जनाएको छ। ‍

भारतीय तरकारीमा विषादीको मात्रा धेरै रहेको रिपोर्ट त्यहाँको सरकार आफैंले निकालेको थियो।

विषादी चेकजाँच गर्न नदिनुलाई राष्ट्रवादसंग मात्र नजोडौं यो त कर्तव्य ज्यानसंग पनि सम्वन्धित छ । कुनै दलसंग भन्दा पनि नेता र जिम्मेवार निकायका व्यक्तिहरुको मानसिकता प्रस्ट भएको भनेर विषादीयुक्त तरकारी जनताका भान्सामा पठाउन अनुमति दिनु अपराध हो भनिएको
छ ।
कुरा भारत सरकारको पनि अखाद्य बस्तु नेपाल लाई बेच्ने नियतको रहेको , बेच्नको लागि भनेर तरकारी फलफुलमा जे पायो त्यहि औसधि प्रयोग हुने गरेको बिबिध घटनाले बर्षेनी हज्जारौं नेपाली र भारतीय नागरिक हरुले ज्यान गुमाईरहेका छन् । यो घटना अन्तरास्ट्रियकारण गरेर बिश्व सामु जवाफदेहि बनाउन सके नेपालीले बिसादी खाएर मरिरहनु पर्ने अवस्था रोकिने छ त्यसको लागि तपाईं हामी सबै सचेत भएर जाग्न जरुरी छ ।

कुरा भर्खर तरकारी फलफुलको मात्र नभएर नक्कली रक्सि , औसधि खानेकुरा धेरै चिजले बोर्डरमा बसेका नेपाली र भारतीय नागरिक हरुले अकालमा पैसा संगै मृत्यु किनिरहेको अवस्थामा दुवै सरकारको यो हद सम्मको लापरबाही अक्षम्य हो ।
पिटिसन् सुरु भए संगै साझा बिबेकशिल पार्टी , बाबुराम भट्टराई, नागरिक समाज , कांग्रेस पार्टी लगायत सत्तापक्षका इमान्दार नेताले पनि एक्य बद्दता जनाउने क्रम रहेको छ ।
यो कुनै दल , व्यक्ति , संस्था भन्दा सार्वजनिक हितमा गैर दलिय मानवतावादी अभियानमा यहाको पनि एक मतले ठुलो मान्यता राख्ने छ ।

नेपाल र सबै नेपालीको जय होस् !
नेपालीको स्वास्थ्य खानेकुरा किनेर खान पाउने अधिकारको जय होस् !

Tests of Indian vegetables for pesticides stopped by the government of Nepal 

The government of Nepal has stopped testing of Indian fruits and vegetables for pesticides at the border for now.

Minister for Industry, Commerce and Supplies Matrika Yadav said the decision has been made to allow entry of fruits and vegetables through the previous process as tests look difficult for now in lack of modern laboratories.

“There was problem of vegetables rotting at the border in lack of infrastructure. The cabinet has, therefore, taken decision to check the vegetables through the previous process for now and start to build laboratories as soon as possible,” Yadav told Setopati.

India had earlier taken exception to testing of Indian fruits and vegetables for pesticides at the border.
Writing a letter to top government officials the Indian Embassy in Kathmandu has expressed concern at the checking.

India had problem on two aspects about the inspection. The first was vegetables and fruits rot due to the time taken for tests as Nepal lacks adequate equipment and human resources at the border points.

The second was regarding reciprocity and it felt Nepal should not check Indian products for pesticides when India does not do so for Nepali fruits and vegetables imported by India.


The government had started testing Indian fruits and vegetables for pesticides from the third week of June. But the move started to ensure import of quality foods has created problems during implementation.
Vegetables and fruits can be currently tested for pesticides only at Kalimati and Hariwan of Sarlahi. Importers, therefore, had to bring the samples to Kathmandu to get clearance in lack of laboratories at the border points.
India complained that vegetables and fruits rot due to the time taken for tests.
Around 40 percent of the fruits and vegetables currently coming to Kalimati Fruits and Vegetables Market come from India.

After Bihar deaths, Nepal puts curbs on fruits and vegetables.
