Nepal’s Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli on Wednesday said that his government will seek a solution to get back its acclaimed territory from India.

As per reports, Oli claimed that his government will be able to solve the land conflict issue between Nepal and India through diplomatic efforts and dialogue on the basis of historical facts and documents.

“We will get back the land occupied by India through holding a dialogue,” Oli said while responding to questions in Parliament on Wednesday.

He claimed that India built a Kali temple, created “an artificial Kali river” and “encroached the Nepalese territory through deploying the Army” at Kalapani.

Oli’s claim came recently after the Nepal House of Representatives unanimously approved a Constitution Amendment Bill to change the country’s political map that lays claim over Kalapani, Lipulekh and Limpiyadhura areas.

Diplomatic ties between India and Nepal came under strain after Defence Minister Rajnath Singh inaugurated an 80-km-long strategically crucial road connecting the Lipulekh pass with Dharchula in Uttarakhand on May 8.

Nepal reacted sharply to the inauguration of the road claiming that it passed through Nepalese territory. India rejected the claim asserting that the road lies completely within its territory.
