KATHMANDU, May 27: Prime Minister K P Oli has urged top leaders of all political parties represented in the parliament to unanimously endorse the constitution amendment bill that recognizes the government's decision to include Kalapani, Lipu Lekh and Limpiyadhura as Nepali territory.
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 22: War of words between Nepal and India has intensified after Nepal issued a new political map that includes its own territories -- Kalapani, Lipu Lekh and Limpiyadhura -- controlled unilaterally by the Indian military since the 1960s. At the heart of this tension is the origin of the Kali River (known as the Mahakali River in Nepal) that defines Nepal's western border with India as per the Treaty of Sugauli reached with the East-India Company in 1816.
KATHMANDU, May 22: The government on Friday registered a bill at the Parliament Secretariat so as to amend the country’s constitution to replace Nepal's old map in the national emblem with the country’s new political and administrative map released recently.
KATHMANDU, May 20: In its first official reaction to the move of Nepal to introduce new political map that includes Kalapani, Lipu Lekh and Limpiyadhura, India has said it will not accept the 'artificial enlargement of territorial claims'.
KATHMANDU, May 19: Prime Minister KP Oli has said that China has clarified that its agreement with India to open a link road through the Lipu Lekh pass does not affect the outstanding boundary questions between Nepal and India.
