New Delhi: On a day Nepal’s Lower House of Parliament unanimously handed a structure modification invoice to replicate its new map within the nationwide emblem, the Congress on Saturday dubbed the event a “sad day” within the longstanding bilateral relations.
“A sad day in the longstanding Indo-Nepal relationship. Tragic that self-professed strong leadership of the BJP remains in ostrich-like denial when it comes to protecting national interest,” Congress Chief Spokesperson Randeep Surjewala mentioned in a press release.
The accredited map contains Indian areas of Kalapani, Lipulekh and Limpiyadhura within the Himalayan nation.
The Congress additionally attacked the Modi authorities and mentioned that the “delusional TV warfare can’t substitute mature political leadership.”
Earlier, Nepal Foreign Minister Pradeep Gyawali tweeted: “The House of Representatives unanimously adopted the constitutional amendment bill, paving the way for accommodating the updated political-administrative map in the national emblem.”
On June 9, Nepal’s House of Representative had unanimously endorsed the invoice to undertake a brand new map of the nation.
The proposal was backed by Nepal Communist Party headed by Prime Minister Okay.P. Oli, the opposition Nepali Congress, and Madhesi-based events.
