New Delhi: Nepal`s Foreign Minister Pradeep Gyawali called Gurkha`s recruitment a legacy of the past and called the 1947 tripartite agreement superfluous and said that, in the amended context, some provisions were questionable. In 1947, India became independent of the United Kingdom, and it was decided between the two governments to divide gurkha regiments between the British and Indian armies – six Gurkha units were part of the new Indian army, while four were transferred to the British Army: „We propose formal talks to verify the tripartite agreement and respond to complaints from Gurkha veterans.“ „The Department would like the British Embassy to be able to work with the relevant British authorities to examine these issues and work out details together, including the formation of teams on both sides. Nepal`s official request for a review comes months after KP Prime Minister Sharma Oli first raised the issue when she met With Theresa May, then British Prime Minister in London, in June. After the meeting between Oli and May, Foreign Minister Pradeep Gyawali said Nepal had proposed a review of the agreement, to which May had responded „positively.“ However, a joint statement issued after the meeting did not mention that Oli had raised the issue. Last year, in December, Nepal said it wanted to review a military agreement allowing its citizens to be linked to the British army. Gyawali said the Nepalese government should also be part of the recruitment process, adding that the agreement should also take into account other issues such as pensions and other benefits, as they are not on an equal footing with their British counterparts. The 1947 agreement between India, Nepal and the United Kingdom on the military service of Gorkha soldiers has become „redundant,“ Nepalese Foreign Minister Pradeep Kumar Gyawali said on Friday. „The recruitment of Gorkha is a legacy of the past. On the one hand, it was the first window open to young Nepalese to go abroad. In the past, it has helped create many jobs for society.
