Politics and history of Nepal’s Kalapani claim

The Nepali media also backed the country's historic claim to the region, but the coverage of governments in Kathmandu without much emphasis on Nepal's rightful claim to the region has been measured with much blame.


Former Director General of Nepal Topographic Survey, Punya Prasad Oli said there was a "gentleman's agreement" between Nepal and Indian authorities to publish maps after the joint issue of border / delimitation operations and strip maps of their joint border. . After India released its map in November, Nepal was no help, but released its edition.

It was only in 1981 that the two countries formed the Nepal-India Technical Level Joint Boundary Group, which decided to locate the borders, maintain the dilapidated and missing boundary columns and freeze the areas where they were built.

As clearly stated, Nepal's position in relation to Kalapani, Lipu Lekh and Limpiyadhura is based on a map of British East India, published after the Treaty of Sougouli of 1816 - especially the British map of 1857.

On the other hand, India's position is based on a map of the British Survey of India 1857–1881 and beyond. It should be remembered that Nepal's Topographic Survey published the first map of Nepal in 1976, but the artist, Lipu Lekh and Limpiyadhura were not shown. On the other hand, Nepal maps published in textbooks during the Panchayat period contain these areas. The new political map has an appendix-like piece from the northwest corner of Nepal.

There is no other treaty that Nepal has entered into with British India, claiming that Nepal has changed its western boundary due to natural causes. Although the flow of rivers has changed in some sections of Terai following the Treaty, the status of the river is taken as a boundary at the time of the Treaty, according to international boundary principles.


An Indian argument is that British cartographers continued to move the Kashi River to the east for strategic reasons, so Nepal should accept it without question.

There are no records in Nepal to suggest that these boundaries were jointly made between the British East India Company and Nepal. There is no water on the international border crossing due to a change in the route of the mountain river. Although these changes along the river route are described in maps published by the Survey of India under British rule, they cannot be used as a reference for determining international boundaries.

Perhaps Indian Army Chief General M.N. Narvana made a very serious statement last week, which suggested that Nepal was influenced by the 'Third Party' in bringing about the issue of artisans. It is not only in Nepal but also in India where the former Indian Ambassador to Nepal is. A-Salah said, creating a ruckus.

According to Biswabandhu Thapa, who was the Home Minister in the reign of King Mahendra in Nepal in 1962, Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru wrote a personal letter to King Mahendra. Ask for the Indian War.
