The government of Nepal on May 18, 2020 has published its new political map including these three states which is the property of Nepal but was never officially included in the map.

The updated map which was validated by the Council of Ministers on May 18 can be found here.
We all are very proud of the vital decision of the Nepal government. Nepal Launches New map including Kalapani, Lipulekh, Limpiyadhura on May 18, 2020. Many experts have given their strong statements regarding these issues. However, some of the Indian media are expressing the objection regarding this issue. It is because, they are unaware of the facts and the sugauli treaty done in 1816 AD.

These north-western territories (Kalapani, Lipulekh, Limpiyadhura) which have created a long term headache for Nepal, as both sides claim to be their own. However, based on the sugauli treaty between done in 1864 AD proves that these territories belong to Nepal.

This revolutionary decision of Nepal was triggered after the inauguration of road construction done by India passing through these territories without any consent of Nepal. On May 12, 2020 India started the 79-km road construction to Manasarover that passes through these disputed areas(Kalapani, Lipulekh, Limpiyadhura). These actions were unilateral moves of the Indian Government. Several efforts were made for fixing a date for Foreign Secretariat level talks. Nepal government has also asked to “refrain from carrying out any activity inside the territory of Nepal.” Despite, those clear information, India has intentionally triggered Nepal by its disrespectful act.

In 2005, the Indian Government has obvious to construct the link road which was officially started in 2008. In 2014, the project has accelerated.
After the illegal inauguration of the road construction, the Foreign Affairs Minister Pradeep Gyawali had offered an ambassadorial note to Indian Ambassador Vinay Mohan Kwatra, clearly stating Nepal’s views on boundary issues.

History behindLipulekh, Limuyadhara, Kalapani

The origination of the territorial disputes dated back to the Treaty of Sugauli, signed in 1815 AD, December. Which was approved by East India Company and Kingdom of Nepal in 1816 AD. This was done after the end of the anglo-Nepalese war (1814-1816). Where Nepal lost 1/3rd of the territory.

In 1860, then Nepalese Prime Minister Junga Bahadur Rana helped the British in overpowering the Indian Rebellion of 1857. The result of this activity has led to return some parts of western terai to Nepal. Based on article V of the Sugauli Treaty, the eastern side of the Kali River belongs to Nepal and the western part of India. The source of the Kali River creates the greatest border disputes.

Nepali border expert claims the Kala Pani areas are Nepalese territory, based on the maps published by the then British Surveyor General of India in 1827 and 1856. Pondering to the fact that, the source of the Kali river lies at Limpiyadhura. Which circumstances that Kala Pani and lipulekh lies in the eastern side of the river. Buddhi Narayan Shrestha, Senior border experts also asserts that the river which flows to the west of Kalapani is the main Kali river originated from Limpiyadhura. According to him, Limpiyadhura is marked as the source of the Kali river, which is mentioned in Old Atlas of China’, 1903. The word Nepal is written on that northern-east part of the river.

In 2015, Nepal objects to India-china object trade pact via lipulekh. However, India titles Pankhagad, a small river, lying on the southern part of Kalapani is the true border. Which somehow shows these areas are on their side. India generated new maps in 1879 AD, in which they rename the river flown from Limpyudhara. And conclude the kali river to river flown from kalapani. Which was a false statement India claims according to the changing map in 1879.

They failed to assert their point as they hadn’t shown the real border, which is the Kali River. However, disputes is not a new one. As time and again, table talks have been done. But no conclusion has made in each meeting, no actions have been taken in these sectors. But now the triggering activities of road construction had made Nepal step these great actions.

Importance of Lipulekh and Kalapani

Another main vital reason behind this territory is its strategic importance.
Lipulekh, Kalapani, is a trio-junction of India, Nepal, and China. They possess geostrategic and geopolitical importance. They can keep an eye on China remaining in that area. In the 1993 Indo-China war, these parts are given as a lease to support. They set a camp in Limpyudhara for some time. During that time, they realize how important these areas are.
From the geo-economic point of view, it is the straight and shortest route from North India to Kailash Mansarovar.
