The Nepalese army is developing a track route parallel to the Indian border to reach their high-altitude villages of Tinkar and Changru to reduce their inhabitant’s reliance on an Indian route, said an Indian official according to PTI.

The track route to Changru from Sunsera village of Nepal is being developed by the Nepalese army. The route will be used by citizens of high-altitude Nepalese villages of Tinkar and Changru who used to use Indian routes to move to lower regions during winter and vice versa in summer months, ” said SDM Dharchula A K Shukla.

Shukla said that there are no tensions in the border area over Nepal Cabinet’s approval of a new map, claiming Kalapani, Limpiadhurs and Lipulekh within their region. “The border is calm and peaceful and no anti-India activities have been witnessed by our intelligence agencies, who are keeping a strict vigil on posts at the Indo-Nepal border,” the SDM said.

Meanshile a report in Kathmandu Post claims that Nepal’s Ambassador to India has been finding it challenging to connect with any official at the Indian Ministry of External Affairs. This could be an indication that New Delhi has hardened its stance, after Nepal’s release of a new political map, the report says.

While officials in Kathmandu have said that Nepal is attempting to hold a dialogue, Nilamber Acharya, the Nepali ambassador in New Delhi, has not been able to to make any progress, according to two diplomatic sources at the Nepali embassy.

“Acharya’s failure is not for a lack of attempting,” a diplomat at the Nepali embassy said. “Indian officials refusing to meet with him has created a very difficult environment in which to hold talks.”

“I cannot tell you at what level but we are talking through different channels,” Acharya said over the phone from New Delhi. “But we have yet to ascertain when we will sit for talks. Though the situation is difficult due to Covid-19, we have to find a way out, and the only way out is through diplomatic talks.”
