Nepal govt tables bill to amend map in Parliament

May 31, 2020 15:12 IST

Nepal's government on Sunday tabled a constitutional amendment bill in Parliament to change the country's map to include disputed land as a part of its territory. The bill proposes to include Kalapani, Limpiyadhura, and Lipulek, a 370 sq km area that both India and Nepal claim as their own, in Nepal's new map. The Nepalese govt has already published a proposed map. The bill was introduced after Nepali Congress, the main opposition party, assured govt that it will support the amendment. India has already rejected the move as unilateral act not based on historical or geographical facts.
