Diplomatic tensions between India and Nepal have strained ever since that country’s parliament passed a new map which shows part of India in the -Kalapani area as Nepalese territory.

Condemning the act, India’s Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), on 20 May said, “The Government of Nepal has released a revised official map of Nepal today that includes parts of Indian territory. This unilateral action is not based on historical facts and evidence. It is contrary to the bilateral understanding to resolve the outstanding boundary issues through diplomatic dialogue. Such artificial enlargement of territorial claims will not be accepted by India.”

Prime Minister of Nepal KP Sharma Oli on 28 June, in what has further created a political turmoil in Nepal, alleged that India was trying to topple his government. Throughout this week, senior leaders of Oli’s Nepalese Communist Party (NCP) have been demanding his resignation over the allegations against a ‘friendly neighbour’.

Nepal was in turmoil yesterday after Prime Minister Oli, refusing to yield to party pressure to step down, got both the houses of the parliament of his country prorogued without consulting the presiding officers to ward off threats to his continuance in office.

The move angered his Maoist partners led by Pushpa Kamal Dahal aka Prachanda. The former prime minister met President Bidhya Devi Bhandari to protest Oli’s “unconstitutional” action and its instant endorsement by her.

Prachanda and Oli are co-chairpersons of the ruling Nepal Communist Party. A crucial meeting of the party central committee has been deferred till Saturday as efforts are being made to keep the party intact.
