Nepal rejects claims of using old map in PM K P Sharma Oli’s Dussehra greeting

By Zeenews

Prime Minister K P Sharma Oli has been criticised by netizens for deliberately not using the updated map of Nepal, showing three Indian areas as part of its territory, in his Dussehra greetings, a claim rejected by his office which said the revised map was not visible due to its tiny size.

In June, Nepal’s Parliament approved the new political map of the country featuring Kalapani, Lipulekh and Limpiyadhura which is part of Pithoragarh district of Uttarakhand. Oli in a Twitter message on Friday conveyed his best wishes to the people of Nepal for Vijayadashami or Dussehra.

Many people on social media, including Facebook and Twitter, commented that the Prime Minister’s office deliberately removed the updated map after his meeting with India’s Research and Analysis Wing (R&AW) chief Samant Kumar Goel.

”How can we consider using Nepal’s old map in the PM’s greeting without incorporating Limpiyadhura as a simple error” asked main Opposition Nepali Congress spokesperson Bishwa Prakash Sharma.
