Nepal's parliament is expected to vote on Saturday on the new map featuring new areas of Lipulekh, Kalapani and Limpiyadhura along with border with India, notwithstanding a strong protest by New Delhi.
The Nepal government had registered an amendment proposal in Parliament on May 22 after releasing a new political map of Nepal depicting disputed regions -- Kalapani, Lipulekh and Limipiyadhura -- as its territories.
How politics in Nepal might pan out in the coming days may not be in India’s control. But Delhi must reclaim the primacy of place it enjoyed for decades among the Nepali political leaders, as well as the people of the country.
India's angry reaction came hours after the Nepal government released a revised political and administrative map of the country, laying claim over the strategically key areas along the border between the two countries.
