Kathmandu, November 6
Netra Bikram Chand-led Nepal Communist Party has objected to India’s act of putting the controversial border territory of Kalapani, Lipulekh and Limpiyadhura on its newly launched political map.
Releasing a statement, the splinter group has said it will state a week-long protest to condemn the action.
The map made public by India earlier this week has put Kalapani, Lupulekh and Limpiyadhura on its map. Against the move, the splinter group has announced to stage a torch rally, during which it will also burn the effigy of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Here is what Chand-led splinter group is planning:
November 7 – Torch Rally
November 8 – Corner meeting
November 9 – Submitting a petition at the Indian Embassy asking India to remove the territories from its map
November 10 – Settling ablaze map of India
November 11 – Protest programme
November 12 – Submitting a letter of dissent to the United Nations
November 13 – Burning the effigy of Indian PM Narendra Modi
