Controversial statement of KP Sharma Oli
Nepal’s former Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli said on Friday that, if his party returns to power in the parliamentary elections to be held on November 20, it will reclaim the Himalayan nation’s territories claimed by India, according to Nepali media reports. Will work for integration in Nepal. KP Sharma has given this statement when he was starting a nationwide election campaign for his party from Darchula district, a remote region of Nepal and this area is located on the Indo-Nepal border. KP Sharma Oli, president of the Communist Parties of Nepal (Nepal Unified Marxist-Leninist Party and CPM-UML), said, “We will bring back our land, which includes Kalapani and Lipulek and Limpiyadhura.” KP Sharma Oli, who turned 70, said that, “We will not leave even an inch of our land and we are committed to protect our nation.”
Nepal provoking India
Meanwhile, Nepali Congress President and Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba has also said that efforts are on to bring back Nepal’s ‘encroached land’ on the basis of diplomatic initiative and mutual relations. Let us tell you that rhetoric has started against India regarding the general elections in Nepal and Nepali leaders are engaged in aggressive rhetoric regarding these three areas. Nepal’s Prime Minister Deuba made the remarks while launching his election campaign in his home district of Dadeldhura in far western Nepal. According to the report, his statement has come after KP Sharma Oli’s remarks. While addressing the election campaign, Deuba said that the issues of Kalapani, Lipulekh, Limpiyadhura and other areas will be resolved through diplomatic initiatives.
Former Prime Minister appealed
However, former Prime Minister of Nepal Dr. Baburam Bhattarai has asked KP Sharma Oli not to make national integrity the agenda of the elections. He said that no party or individual should make the territorial integrity of the country an election agenda. Former Prime Minister Bhattarai tweeted this without naming Oli. Former Prime Minister Bhattarai cited the incident in 1960, (when former King Mahendra dismissed the elected government and banned all political parties in the country), he cited Hitler’s atrocities to say that only those inspired by fascism did This has made nationalism a political agenda.
How did the Indo-Nepal dispute start?
Let us tell you that on 8 May 2020, the Government of India inaugurated a strategically important road connecting Lipulekh Pass to Dharchula in Uttarakhand, after which the relations between India and Nepal became tense during the reign of the then Nepalese Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli. Were. Nepal had opposed the inauguration of the road, claiming that the road passes through its territory. A few days later, Nepal presented a new map showing Lipulekh, Kalapani and Limpiyadhura as its territories, to which India reacted strongly.
Nepalese parliament approved the map
In June last year, Nepal’s parliament approved a new political map of the country, showing the areas that are part of India. There was a strong reaction from India on this effort of the Nepalese Parliament and it was called ‘unilateral action’ of Nepal. At the same time, India warned Kathmandu that such “artificial expansion” of territorial claims would not be acceptable to India. At the same time, KP Sharma OP, who was the main opposition leader in the Nepalese Parliament, accused India of presenting the fake origin of the Kali river. Let us tell you that on November 20, 2022, elections for the Federal Parliament and Provincial Assemblies will also be held in Nepal in a single phase, so the atmosphere is hot in Nepal these days regarding political accusations.
