China will benefit from Indo-Nepal dispute

Indo-Nepal dispute

The new road of 80 km via Lipulekh via Pithoragarh to reach Kailash Mansarovar within Tibet has revived an old wound in relations between India and Nepal. India did not heal this wound in time. As a result of this, the danger of cracks in Nepal and India relations has become so deep, that the treatment will be very painful. There is no doubt that China will benefit from this because the anti-India wind in Nepal will be further intensified by this dispute. Political consensus has been formed in Nepal on this issue and anti-India protests have started. • The old boundary dispute

India's administrative and revenue authority over the Kalapani-Lipulekh region, located on the Indo-China-Nepal triangle, has been there since the 19th century. It is also true that in the Sugauli Treaty between British India and Nepal in 1816, the area west of the Mahakali River was considered under British India. Then in the Treaty of 1923, these conditions were repeated. Nepali leaders have also said that the area east of the Mahakali river is from Nepal. On this basis too, the area west of the river should be of India. But the Nepalese people later began to describe the area west of the Mahakali river as well. They say that the Mahakali River originates from the stream of Limpiyadhura northwest of Lipulekh. Hence the area of ​​Kalapani, Limpiyadhura and Lipulekh would be within Nepal. On the other hand, India argues that the Mahakali River originates from the lower part of the Lipulekh Pass and since the areas north of this river stream were not determined in the Sugauli Treaty, the administrative and revenue control over this area of ​​Kalapani was with the Indian administration. Is coming

Nepal has been given the confidence of India to resolve this disputed issue at a diplomatic level. In 2000, Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee also assured the then Nepali Prime Minister GP Koirala that by 2002 the Indo-Nepal border would be determined. Obviously, this could not happen, which only worsened the situation. Actually this area is very important from a strategic point of view. For this reason, when the 80-km-long road to Kailash Mansarovar was inaugurated, China was aghast because the Indian military movement through Tibet would be easy through this road.

Although China has said that the issue is between India and Nepal, it will not comment on it. But in diplomatic circles, it is believed that China has been instigating Nepal from behind the scenes to raise the issue of black water. China seems to have succeeded in creating a rift in the relationship between India and Nepal for centuries. Today, when there is already a wall of suspicion in relations between India and Nepal and Nepalese leaders are forced to make China happy, then the land dispute raised by Nepal will only serve as a thorn in the path of Indo-Nepal relations.

The Chinese ambassador indicated his dominance in Nepal's politics two weeks ago when he called Nepalese politicians in Kathmandu at an unusual meeting to ask Prime Minister KP Sharma not to revolt against Oli. The meeting of the Chinese Ambassador was also attended by national leaders like former Prime Minister Prachanda who are facing a crisis of their existence. So, he agreed to the Chinese ambassador. It is clear that the Chinese ambassador's dominance over Nepali politicians has increased so much that he can instruct Nepali politicians how and who to lead the government. As a result, the Nepalese Prime Minister has pledged in the Nepali Legislative Assembly to take it away from India in any way, while describing the area around Lipulekh Pass as his territory.

The Nepal government has also released a new map of Nepal showing the area of ​​Kalapani, Limpiyadhura-Lipulekh as part of Nepal. Last week, the Indian Army Chief General Mukund Narwane while addressing a meeting rightly said that Nepal is creating a dispute with India at the behest of anyone. General Narwane did not name any country, but his clear reference was to China. One result of this will be that there will be a huge rift in the relations between India and Nepal and by showing fear of India, China will strengthen its grip on Nepal. Just like he has taken Pakistan into his clutches. Like Pakistan, Nepal will one day say that it is an evergreen friend of China.

It is difficult

China is now taking special interest in creating anti-Indian air in India's neighboring countries. He has done the same with Sri Lanka but the Sri Lankan leaders are more sensible, so they attach importance to the relationship with India too. The leaders of Nepal have come so far in the grip of China that it will be very difficult for India to remove them from the clutches of China. China is already wooing Nepal by showing a dream of road and rail connectivity that it will not have to depend on India for petrol and other essential goods. Nepali politicians are doing politics to harm the country for the sake of their chair. This is the reason why Prime Minister Oli had to clarify in the Nepali assembly that he is running the government as a representative of the Nepalese people, not by the grace of any foreign ambassador and no one can take away his chair from him.
