The government of Nepal is set to get the approval of a new map from its Parliament today. Indian Army Chief General MM Naravane says “everything is under control”?
Kathmandu/Dehradun/New Delhi: The government of Nepal is set to get the approval of a new map from its Parliament today. The result of the Constitution Amendment Bill, to be placed for voting today seems to be just a formality as all major parties have decided to vote in favour of the amendment.
The Constitution Amendment Bill for a new map bordering India has been tabled a day after the Nepal Armed Police Force (NAPF) killed one Indian national and two others injured along the border of Sitamarhi district. One person has also been detained.
The firing took place after a difference, which has turned to be ugly in Sitamarhi border of the Indian side. The NAPF personnel opened fire at the Indian side killing one Indian national while two person were seriously injured and one was detained.
Nepal government did not waste much time to get into the approval process from its Parliament. However, India has recently made attempts to get things settled diplomatically. India had also reminded Kathmandu about its uninterrupted supplies of essentials to Nepal during the lockdown period caused by COVID-19 outbreak.
India’s relations with China have also not been going well for quite sometimes. Rahul Gandhi has recently asked Rajnath Singh to make the India-China border situation clear.
In the wake of border stalemate between India and China in Eastern Ladakh, Indian Army Chief General MM Naravane on Saturday said the situation along India’s borders with China “is under control” and the two nations were engaged in “series of talks”.
Speaking to the media at the Indian Military Academy in Dehradun, Gen. Naravane said that Indian and Chinese military officials are engaged in high delegation-level talks in a bid to resolve the month-long row over the Line of Actual Control.
He said, “I would like to assure everyone that the entire situation along our borders with China is under control. We’re having a series of talks which started with Corps Commander level talks and has been followed up with meetings at the local level between Commanders of equivalent ranks.”
He said that there a lot of disengagement, which has taken place, and it is hoped that the differences will be settled through dialogue. He said that everything is under control and that both sides are engaged in serious talks.
