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.
