KATHMANDU, Nov 19: Amid calls from various quarters that the issues surrounding Kalapani and other territories should be resolved through high-level diplomatic negotiations between India and Nepal, the government has started necessary homework to gather historical evidences that support its claim that Kalapani and other territories encroached by India originally belonged to Nepal.

KALAPANI: THEN AND NOW

November 14, 2019 12:20 pm

Kalapani, a territory between Nepal and India for many decades, once again made into the newspaper headlines after India released its new political map claiming the land as their territory on Oct 31, 2019.

KATHMANDU, Nov 12: The State Affairs Committee (SAC) of the House of Representatives (HoR) has directed the government to issue a new political map of Nepal comprising Limpiadhura, one of the major contentious border points with India, a week after the controversy created by a new Indian political map which includes the Nepali territories of Kalapani and Lipulekh.

KATHMANDU, Nov 10: Top political leaders including former prime ministers and noted boundary experts have suggested to Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli to reclaim Nepali territory encroached by India in Darchula district.

KATHMANDU, Nov 9: Former Prime Ministers and Foreign Ministers have suggested Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli to hold talks with his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi to resolve existing border disputes including Kalapani.

KATHMANDU, Nov 9: In an attempt to build national consensus on how to pressure India to revise its recently released controversial political map and respect Nepali territory, Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has called an all-party meeting for Saturday, inviting former prime ministers, former foreign affairs ministers, border experts and top politicians.

KATHMANDU, Nov 8: Even as protests mount across the country against the inclusion of the Kalapani area in a newly released political map of India, the coat of arms used by several government offices in Nepal on their official websites appear to conform to the Indian version in this particular regard.

KATHMANDU, Nov 7: Nepal has said that any unilateral decision to change border demarcations would not be acceptable after a new political map released by the Indian government last week continued to include Kalapani and Lipu Lekh – at the tri-junction point between Nepal, India and China – in Indian territory.

KATHMANDU, Nov 6: Nepal has strongly objected to a recently-unveiled political map by the Indian government that has placed Nepali territory Kalapani inside Indian borders.
