1. What's All The Fuss About?
Right after the publication of the revised map of India, protests started mounting in Nepal as youths and students of the ruling Nepal Communist Party and the opposition Nepali Congress took to the streets.
In his reaction, Nepal Prime Minister KP Oli said that the Kalapani area at the tri-junction of Nepal, India and Tibet belonged to Nepal, and “India should immediately withdraw its army”.
After Nepal foreign ministry raised this matter with India, MEA was quick to respond saying that the Indian map is absolutely accurate and nothing has been revised as far as the borders are concerned.“Our map accurately depicts the sovereign territory of India. The new map has in no manner revised our boundary with Nepal. The boundary delineation exercise with Nepal is ongoing under the existing mechanism. We reiterate our commitment to find a solution through dialogue in the spirit of our close and friendly bilateral relations.”Raveesh Kumar, MEA Spokesperson
