The political crisis is deepening in Nepal at this time and Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli is engaged in every possible effort to save his government. According to the report of Hindustan Times, in the meanwhile Nepal Sashastra Prahari (NSP) has removed 2 out of 6 new outposts established near the border in Dharchula area of Pithoragarh district of Uttarakhand.
KP Oli, who came under attack on anti-India decisions, is currently fighting against the leader of his own party to save power in Nepal. A standing committee of the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) was to hold a meeting on Monday to decide the future of Oli but it has been deferred till Wednesday. Please tell that in the same party, co-chairman Pushp Kamal Dahal Prachanda has also accused the Prime Minister of trying to grab power through the army.
Meanwhile, the decision of the Nepal government to remove two posts in Uttarakhand is also being linked to this political crisis. The relations between the two countries were strained after India inaugurated a strategically important road connecting Lipulekh Pass to Dharchula town in Pithoragarh district. Six new border posts were established by Nepal from this area about 6 months ago.
At the same time, the Oli government claimed that Kalapani, Lipulekh and Limpiyadhura fall in the Nepali region of Pithoragarh district. The Parliament of Nepal also passed a new map showing the three regions.
Confirming the removal of the border posts, Sub-Divisional Magistrate of Dharchula, Anil Kumar Shukla said, “Two border posts operated by the NSP were removed two days ago.” Shukla said, “We noticed this during a brief meeting with Nepali officials at the check post a few days ago. When we inquired about it, they said that it was done on the orders of the higher officials. “
Experts of Indo-Nepal relations in Uttarakhand have termed Nepal’s move as important in tension in bilateral relations. According to the information, Nepal’s decision to remove the post will reduce the tension. It is also being considered as a sign of a change in the attitude of Nepal amid fears of the fall of PM Oli’s government.
