Taking a dig at India, Nepal Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli on Tuesday said that its neighbour should not go against its motto of ‘Satyameva Jayate’ (truth alone triumphs) in its ties with Nepal. It comes as India and Nepal have entered into a dispute on possession of territories of Lipulekh, Kalapani and Limpiyadhura. ‘Satyameva Jayate’ (truth alone triumphs) is the inscription featured on the State Emblem of India – a four-faced lion.
While addressing the meeting of the Parliament, PM Oli also said, “The idea of removing historical misunderstandings is to deepen our friendship with India.” Amid standoff, Oli made Nepal’s position clear saying that there had been communication with China on the matter as well on the matter.
Nepal’s Foreign Minister Pradeep Kumar Gyaali on Monday said that the official map will soon be made by the Ministry of Land Management. “Decision of the Council of Ministers to publish the map of Nepal in 7 provinces, 77 districts and 753 local level administrative divisions including Limpiyadhura, Lipulekh and Kalapani,” Gyaali tweeted Monday.
