Prachanda said diplomatic efforts would have to be made with India to acquire the alleged Nepalese land. Nepali leader Prachanda said he had supported Oli in the last election but this time he is unlikely to be re-elected. Earlier, KP Oli made an anti-India statement near Dharchula to polarize the voters of Nepal. While starting his election campaign, Oli had said that we will take back our land from India. It includes Kalapani, Lipulekh and Limpadhuria.
Baburam Bhattarai also made a scathing attack on Oli
India has completely rejected the claim of Nepal’s Kalapani, Lipulekh and Limpadhuria. Oli had also said that he was committed to the defense of Nepal. He said, ‘We will not give up even an inch of our land.’ On the other hand, on Oli’s claim, Nepal’s Prime Minister and Nepali Congress leader Sher Bahadur Deuba has said that we will take back the occupied land of Nepal on the basis of diplomatic efforts and mutual relations. Former Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai also launched a scathing attack on Oli and said without taking names that no one should make the country’s regional unity an election agenda.
Bhattarai said that only those affected by fascism can make nationalism an election agenda. He advised Oli not to make national solidarity an election agenda. Earlier, during his tenure as Prime Minister, Oli had changed the map of Nepal and described all the three disputed areas as part of Nepal. This whole controversy started when in the year 2020, India opened the road connecting Lipulekh to Dharchula. Nepal opposed it. India gave a befitting reply to this.
