Kalapani border dispute between India and Nepal will end, Prachanda gave a big signal after meeting PM Modi

Kathmandu: The Kalapani border dispute between India and Nepal has been a center of tension for a long time. Now the Prime Minister of Nepal Pushpa Kamal Dahal Prachanda is on his first official visit to India. Prachanda had met PM Modi on Thursday. Prachanda has revealed that after the meeting with PM Modi, discussions have now started on what could be the option to end the Kalapani border dispute. Prachanda has indicated that Nepal may exchange land with India to resolve this border dispute.

Under this, instead of giving the land of Kalapani, India should give land route to Bangladesh to Nepal. This land route is wanted by Nepal under the Siliguri Corridor, which is like a ‘chicken neck’ for India and is strategically very important in view of the threat from China. This is the reason why it is not yet certain that India will accept this demand of Nepal. Prachanda said that he has discussed the issue of border dispute with PM Modi. This includes the Kalapani dispute and swapping of lands so that Nepal gets direct access to the sea.
