This Border dispute comes into controversy when Nepal come out with a new map of their country and within it,they included an area which they hadn't earlier.They included an area which is under India's control.You can look the area under the map given below :-



This area is the eastern most tip of Uttarakhand. Area is around 300 sq.kilometers.And the northmost village is Limpiyadhura. And the south-eastern part of it is Lipulekh pass.Gunji lies in South-west and Kalapani in the south.

Nepal believes that this area rightfully belongs to Nepal.Whereas India think that this area belongs to them.

When did this begin?

The controversy broke out due to 2 events which happened around 6 months ago:-
1.The first event happened on November 2019.When Modi government released a new map of India,in which the region of Kalapani was claimed to be under India,which triggered the Nepal government.
2. Second event happened on 8th May 2020 When India's Defence Minister Rajnath Singh tweet to inaugurated a new road.The road was around 80 kilometers along the India-Nepal Border through this disputed area uptil Lipulekh.

The purpose of this road is to aid the people on the Kailash-Mansarovar Yatra as per claims.Before the construction of this road,people travelled through Sikkhim to go to Kailash-Mansarover.

After the inauguration of this road,Nepal Government was upset as they believed that Lipulekh Pass is under Nepal.In response to this,the external ministry affairs said that this area comes completely under the territory of India and therefore they did not hold a consultation with Nepal.

The Army Chief on 15th May,said that the protests in Nepal were influenced by China.This further upset the people in Nepal.

Nepal become democratic in late 1990s but they had not declared that the Limpiyadhura under it for so many years.
