Nepal has named three regions of India as its own in the new map. The revised map claims the strategically important Lipulekh, Kalapani and Limpiyadhura areas along India's border.
The border dispute between India and Nepal is constantly increasing. Nepal has now landed on Sinajori. Recently, India had asked Nepal to stop the 'illegal' movement of its citizens in the Indian region of Kalapani, Limpiyadhura, Lipulekh, and Gunji.
But instead of agreeing, Nepal has responded by writing a letter to India and said that it is their area.
According to local media reports, in a letter to the Nepalese administration earlier this month, the Indian official said that the Nepalese people wanted to enter these areas in an 'illegal' manner, which would cause problems for both the countries.
According to the Himalayan Times, Anil Shukla, Deputy District Commissioner of Dharchula in Pithoragarh district of Uttarakhand, in a letter dated 14 July, also requested the Nepalese administration to share information about such activities with Indian authorities.
Quoting Sharad Kumar Pokharel, Chief District Officer of Darchula, Nepal, the newspaper said, "We have received a letter and call has been received about India's decision to stop the Nepalese (Indian) from going."
In their response, Nepalese officials said that the movement of its citizens in Kalapani, Limpiyadhura, and Gunji is 'natural', as these areas belong to the country (Nepal). Responding to the letter, Nepal's Darchula district officer Tek Singh Kunwar wrote, "Sugauli Treaty was signed between Nepal and the British East India Company in 1818. Under the Sugauli Treaty, east of the Mahakali River, Limpiyadhura, Kuti, Kalapani, Gunji and Lipulekh fall under the territory of Nepal.
Former Deputy Prime Minister of Nepal Kamal Thapa shared this letter on Twitter and also praised the reply given to India.
