Tension from the year 2020
Prachanda had said that the pending boundary issues between the two countries should be resolved bilaterally. He said this in a joint statement with Prime Minister Narendra Modi after bilateral talks. Prachanda said that he urges PM Modi to resolve border issues through dialogue. The Nepal prime minister’s remarks were in the context of the territorial dispute between the two countries over the Kalapani-Limpiyadhura-Lipulekh tri-junction area, which is claimed by both the countries. Nepal released a new political map in the year 2020. Since then, tension had arisen in the relations between the two countries. The map of Nepal showed three Indian territories–Limpiyadhura, Kalapani and Lipulekh–as part of Nepal.
