India warns Nepal over illegal entry of Nepalese citizens into ‘Kalapani’

New Delhi: It has been revealed that the Nepalese citizens are entering illegally into the Kalapani, Limpiyadhura and Lipulekh regions. This intrusion has started after Nepal published a map showing 395 square kilometres of Indian territory including Kalapani, Limpiyadhura and Lipulekh, at a part of Nepal. India has taken cognisance of the intrusion and has warned the Nepal government to stop these illegal activities of the Nepalese citizens, in the region. Thereafter, Nepal said that India could not stop the entry of Nepalese citizens in this region, claiming that this was a Nepalese territory. A new dispute seems to be developing over this issue. As per analysts, the KP Sharma Oli government is in trouble and Oli is trying to avert the crisis by escalating the dispute with India.   

Defence Minister Raj Nath Singh had inaugurated the strategic road connecting Dharchula in Uttarakhand to Lipulekh pass. Thereafter, Nepal incited India by showing Kalapani, Limpiyadhura and Lipulekh as part of Nepal, in the new map released. This created tension in India-Nepal relations. Analysts had clarified that this anti-India stand and decisions, by the Nepal government are at Chinese behest.  

Now, Nepal has started infiltrating this region with its citizens. It is being said that the pro-China Communist party of Nepal is perpetrating these intrusion attempts. India asked Nepal to stop these illegal entrants in this region and warned that this would create a rift in the India-Nepal relations.  

Since the last few days, intrusion of the Nepalese people has increased in this area and India has increased the deployment of the SSB soldiers on the border. But the Nepal government is still encouraging its citizens to intrude into the territory. Nepal has begun construction of a new post in the area near Balarampur in Uttar Pradesh. Whereas, the Nepalese infiltration has increased at Tanakpur in the Champawat district of Uttarakhand. Therefore, Indian patrolling in this region also has been increased. It is claimed that Nepalese Prime Minister Oil, caught in a political crisis, is trying to save his seat by creating new disputes with India.
