Government to form panel to inspect borders with India, ChinaIndia's new political map placing Kalapani, which Nepal has claimed as its territory, within Indian borders has created quite an uproar in Nepal.
The government has decided to form committees to inspect borders with India and China. Minister for Communication and Information Technology Gokul Baskota informed the media about the government's decision to form the committees during the weekly press briefing in Singha Durbar on Thursday.
India's new political map placing Kalapani, which Nepal has claimed as its territory, within Indian borders has created quite an uproar in Nepal. India released the new map earlier this month after New Delhi formally split up the disputed Jammu and Kashmir state into two federal territories in line with an August move by the Narendra Modi government to rescind Kashmir’s autonomy.
Kathmandu has maintained that “Nepal is clear about Kalapani being a part of Nepal’s territory” and that “any unilateral decision on any outstanding issues that need to be sorted out through mutual agreement will not be acceptable to the Nepal government.”
