Nepal issues textbooks with map including Indian areas

nepal-

KATHMANDU: Nepal has introduced new textbooks in the school curriculum that include the country's revised political map showing three strategically important Indian areas as part of its territory, amidst a border dispute with New Delhi.


India has already termed as untenable the “artificial enlargement” of the territorial claims by Nepal after its Parliament unanimously approved the new political map of the country featuring Lipulekh, Kalapani and Limpiyadhura areas which India maintains belongs to it.

The new books titled “Nepal's territory and reading materials for border issues” for classes IX and XII have a preface

written by Education Minister Giriraj Mani Pokharel.

Nepal in May released the revised political and administrative map of the country laying claim over the three areas in Uttarakhand, more than six months after India published a new map in November 2019.

The Nepal government has also decided to issue coins with the inclusion of Kalapani area.
