Nepal depicts Indian areas as its own in book
Three months after passing an amendment to sanction a new political map that identifies Indian territory in Uttarakhand’s Pithoragarh as its own, Nepal has inscribed the changes in its academic curriculum and currency.
The office of Nepal education minister Giriraj Mani Pokharel confirmed to TOI the book, ‘Nepalko Bhubhaag Ra Seemasambandhi Swadhyay Samagri (Nepal’s geography and territorial boundary)’ has been introduced for higher secondary school students. The preface has been written by Pokharel. The book includes the disputed area of Kalapani in Uttarakhand as Nepal’s territory. A source said it mentions Nepal has a geographical area of 1,47,641.28 sq km, of which 460 sq km is the Kalapani area.
尼泊尔教育部长Giriraj Mani Pokharel向《印度时报》证实，这本名为“尼泊尔地理和领土边界的书已纳入高中生教材出。序言由Pokharel撰写。该书将北阿坎德邦的卡拉帕尼争议地区划归为尼泊尔领土。书中提及，尼泊尔的地理面积为147641.28平方公里，其中卡拉帕尼地区为460平方公里。
The same day, the Nepal cabinet, headed by PM K P Oli, also gave permission to the country’s central bank, Nepal Rastra Bank, to mint new coins of one-rupee and two-rupee denominations with the new political map.
当天，由总理奥利领导的尼泊尔内阁也批准了尼泊尔央行（Nepal Rastra Bank），在1卢比和2卢比面额的新硬币上印制新政治版图。
Sources said this was announced by the Nepal go nment spokesperson and foreign minister Pradeep Gyawali. In all likelihood, sources added, the new coins will be in circulation by Dussehra (Dashain, as it’s called there), celebrated as a major festival in the neighbouring country.
In November last year, Nepal had protested against the inauguration of a key Lipulekh road in Pithoragarh by Union defence minister Rajnath Singh, alleging that a part of the stretch passed through Nepal’s territory. After a renewed dispute over three areas — Limpiyadhura, Lipulekh and Kalapani — Nepal’s parliament unanimously voted to amend the Constitution to update the country’s map to include them as part of its land. The go nment had then announced that all documents will start using the new map.
So now, a source said, introduction of the map in school books and coins is “fully legal” because it follows what is a regular course of action. “The go nment has started the process of issuing the new maps to Nepal embassies and is introducing it in go nment gazettes as well,” the source added.
Many in Nepal, meanwhile, said the need for a resolution is getting more important by the day. “There have been misunderstandings between the two nations over the past few months. However, introducing a new Nepal map is a sovereign decision by the country,” Khadga KC, head of the department of international relations and diplomacy at Tribhuvan University, told TOI. “But I do believe that the issues should be resolved through dialogue and a solution must be found.”
Nepal under Oli has become completely suicidal...
Keep feeding wrong information to kids and make them haters, who looses??? you, you're future generations. Nothing happens to india.
Nepal can show whole India is in Nepal.. who cares?
Nepal is going to die by its own deeds.
India should include whole of Nepal in Indian maps
We should also amend our Secondary School Text Book to show entire Nepal as our Indian territory.
INDIA should Mark all the NEPAL as INDIA,
Let's send a batallion or 2 to Nepal to rein in this arrogant ID!OT! As soon as he sees our might he will not just shut up but also resign...hahahaha
China ka chamacha Oily Oli ko bithao doli me aur maro goli. Idiot PM is dead set to turn our friendship to enemity.
What can i say when our PM modi is coward..
This mudi not just destroyed economy but also gave away huge land to China and even Nepal snatched it's part, while all other neighbors are also waiting to laugh at when India enters into war with China. the miserable bhakts still busy defending him
World only respects strength .
India opened a road through Nepal to the border with great fanfare, ready to invade China. Nepal presented a map to UN to show India aggression. India called that Nepal map illegal, but every Indian map, such as its new Ladak Union Territory that intrude into both Nepal and China, is called legal by Indians
The entire world knows India can not fight China, may be to a draw if fighting Pakistan, but India surely can fight Nepal. High time to move Indian troops into Nepal now to force a re gie change or annex it as another India UT.
It's time to show them their place.
Nepal is getting good money from Chinese...Nepal will sufer in long run if things go in this away.
