Accept the truth

Hawkish interview of Vijay Jolly, a leader of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), regarding the Indian encroachment of Kalapani area of Nepal calls everybody to revisit historical facts. He did not mention historical facts supporting India's claim during his fiery interview with Nepali Radio Network on May 22 with Rishi Dhamala. Agreements between Nepal and the British India, including the Treaty of Sugauli and its supplement, letters, administrative practices and subsequently published maps of Nepal, evidently show Nepal's sovereignty over the area of Limpiyadhura, Lipu Lekh and Kalapani (LLK) in Darchula district of Nepal.

KATHMANDU, May 19: The government has endorsed a new political map that includes Kalapani and Limpiyadhura. The government will soon publicize the new political map that incorporates the territory unilaterally kept by India on its side of the border.
