Virus from India more lethal than Chinese or Italian: Nepal PM

May 20, 2020 15:22 IST

Amid a row over new road inaugurated by India, Nepal Prime Minister KP Oli has told the country’s parliament that virus from India "looks more lethal" than Chinese and Italian as he blamed New Delhi for the spread of coronavirus cases in his country. Oli said those who are coming from India through illegal channels are spreading the virus in the country and some local representatives and party leaders are responsible for bringing in people from India without proper testing. In the same speech, Oli also said Nepal would ‘bring back at any cost’ the Kalapani-Limpiyadhura-Lipulekh area, which is part of Indian territory.
