The unanimous endorsement of a proposal to consider constitutional amendment bill replacing the country’s map in the national emblem to include territories of Kalapani, Lipulek and Limpiyadhura by the sovereign parliament of Nepal is a bold step. How it impacts Nepal-India ties in future is a matter of conjecture. This event also highlighted an unseemly event where a sitting MP from a newly formed Janata Samajwadi Party Sarita Giri, defying her party line, lodged an amendment on the above bill brought by the government stating that the area should be removed from the map as its source and evidence is yet to be revealed, for which she was castigated by her party. Giri is a naturalized citizen after marriage and was born and raised in India.
