Kalapani Dispute – After Pakistan, Nepal Protests Over Territorial Dispute With India

India released an official map on October 31 that displayed parts of Kalapani, an area located on the western edge of Nepal. This is Kathmandu’s’s first public response after the map was released by India. Oli explained that the leftist government remains committed to finding an amicable solution to the border dispute with India.

“This patriotic government won’t let anyone take even an inch of Nepali land. The neighbouring country should withdraw its troops from our land,” PM Oli said”. 

There has been no official response from New Delhi so far. Oli had called for an all-party meeting on November 9, which comprised of former prime ministers and ex-foreign ministers. Oli was reportedly urged to take up the issue with India on an urgent basis.

Earlier, the Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar had said that the map accurately depicts the sovereign territory of India. Reiterating the commitment to find a solution through dialogue in the “spirit of our close and friendly bilateral relations”, Kumar said that the boundary delineation exercise with Nepal is ongoing under the existing mechanism.

The Kalapani territory is under Indian administration as part of Pithoragarh district in the Uttarakhand state and marked by the Kalapani river, one of the headwaters of the Kali River in the Himalayas
