Nepal’s territory cannot be lost by placing it in India’s map: CM Bhatta
KAILALI: Chief Minister of Sudurpashchim State Trilochan Bhatta on Thursday said Nepal’s territory does not belong to India by placing it in the latter’s political map. He referred to the placement of Nepal’s territories, Kalapani and Lipulekh Pass, in India’s new map.
He responded to National Youth Forum and All Nepal National Free Students Union, a student wing affiliated to the ruling Nepal Communist Party, who reached the Office of Chief Minister and Council of Ministers in Dhangadhi and submitted a memorandum demanding initiatives to mount pressure to make corrections in India’s map. Receiving the memo, CM Bhatta said Nepal’s territory cannot be lost when India places it in its map. India’s placement of territory of sovereign Nepal within its territory was a wrong move, he said.
The state government was urging the federal government to take necessary initiatives on this matter, he said. The youth and student’s organisations demanded that the government be serious about serious issues like attacks on Nepal’s sovereignty and nationalism.
