Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has said Kalapani, Limpiyadhura and Lipulek are Nepali territories, pledging to reclaim Nepal’s ownership over them.
In his replies to queries raised during the discussions over the government policy and programmes for the fiscal year 2077/078 BS today in the House, the Prime Minister expressed his commitments to getting back encroached land through concrete diplomatic efforts.
‘Satyameva Jayate’ (truth alone triumphs) is the inscription featured on the State Emblem of India: a four-faced lion and Nepal is confident that India would never behave towards Nepal and Nepali going against its motto, according to the Prime Minister.
He informed the House that a new political map of Nepal which integrates Limpiydhura, Kalapani and Lipulek as its parts had been endorsed by the Council of Ministers and the government decided to issue the revised map after India constructed a link road via the Nepali territory.
As he said, the map will be presented before the House and he is confident the House will endorse it. The Prime Minister went on to say that there were evidences that Nepal used to collect land revenue there until the 2018 BS and the areas were included in the national census in the past.
He took time to say that the incumbent government took right decision in regard with the territories encroached upon by India. According to him, Indian army personnel had secured their space in Kalapani in 1962 and it was tolerated by past rulers. ”Now we are committed to reach to a conclusion and get back our land.”
