Kathmandu: Amid the ongoing tension with India, neighboring country Nepal is preparing to send its disputed map to the global community. According to the Ministry of Land Management, the government is making necessary preparations to translate the map into English and send it to the global community including United Nations Organization (UNO) and Google.
Minister Padma Aryal said that we will soon send Kalapani, Lipulekh and Limpiyadhura to the global community by including them in the revised map. He said that we are translating the map into English. We will deliver the map by mid-August. According to Damodar Dhakal, information officer of Nepalese Measurement Department, work is going on to publish 4000 copies of the new map of Nepal in English. A committee has also been formed for this.
The department has printed 25,000 copies of the maps to be distributed within the country. These copies will be distributed free of cost to local units, provincial and all other public offices, while the common people can buy it for 50 rupees. Let us tell you that on 20 May, the Nepal government released a map claiming its three parts of India. The disputed map depicts Kalapani, Lipulekh and Limpiyadhura of India as Nepal. India has been opposing this disputed map from the beginning. Despite this, this bill was passed in the Parliament of Nepal on 13 June.
