Modi’s visit to Gunji irks Nepal opposition – The Indian Express

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Gunji near Kalapani, Uttarakhand has triggered an uproar in Nepal.
Nepal’s Opposition parties claimed Modi “came to our territory” without informing authorities and asked how it happened.
Prominent Nepalese parliamentarians, including Thakur Prasad Gaire of main opposition Communist Party of Nepal-Unified Marxist Leninist, Rabi Lamichhane of Rastriya Swatantra Party and Dipak Bahadur Singh of Rastriya Prajatantra Party, claimed “Gunji in Kalapani was Nepal’s territory” and the visit by Modi therewithout “permission” was a breach of diplomatic traditions.
Kalapani, Limpiadhura and Lipulekh on the India-Nepal border are included in the official maps of both countries, although they are under India’s administration. Nepal PM Pushpa Kamal Dahal, after a visit to India in June, said Modi assured him of “doing everything to resolve the dispute”.
