Nepal, for a while, is raging protests against India’s new political, which they say wrongfully depicts Kalapani as a part of India. Nepal has claimed that Kalapani lies within its boundary and has been criticising India’s new map for illegally showcasing it as India’s part.
Following the same, Nepal’s Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli on Sunday said that the Kalapani area belonged to Nepal, and added that dialogue will follow after India “withdraws its army from our land.”
Notably, the Indian government had earlier stated that the new political map accurately depicts the sovereign territory of India and that it is committed to finding a solution through dialogue. The new map has been prepared following the subrogation of Article 370 and division of the then Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories, namely Ladakh and Jammu and Kashmir.
