India conspiring to topple Nepal government: PM Oli
Nepal : Nepal Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has alleged that India has been conspiring to topple his government after he issued a new map of his country showing three Indian territories of Kalapani, Lipulekh and Limpiyadhura as Nepal's territories.
At an event to commemorate the 69th birth anniversary of late Madan Bhandari at the Prime Minister's residence in Kathmandu, Oli said, "Listen to the media in Delhi.. Activities have been stepped up in hotels and at the Indian mission (in Kathmandu)... If anyone dreams of unseating the prime minister of this country for publishing the map and including the map in the constitution... Don't even think of it!"
"I did not commit any mistake by claiming our land, which has been snatched from us for the past 58 years after Nepal enjoyed the rights over these areas for 146 years," Oli said.
Recently, the new map was passed in the Nepal parliament.
The India-Nepal bilateral ties came under strain after the inauguration of the 80-km-long road connecting Lipulekh pass with Dharchula in Uttarakhand by Union defence Minister Rajnath Singh on May 8.
Nepal criticised the move claiming that it passed through Nepalese territory. India has rejected the claim asserting that the road lies within its territory.
Earlier, Oli had blamed India for sending coronavirus to their country.
