Nepal PM slams India – Says ‘Indian Virus Looks More Lethal Than Chines, Italian”. Mr. Oli was in is first parliament speech since a major health care break. Nepal earlier released a ‘new map’ claiming parts of Indian territories. The Nepal Prime Minister’s offensive statement has brought shock and awe to the Indians. He claimed that India brought Coronavirus to Nepal.

 

“Those who are coming from India through illegal channels are spreading the virus in the country and some local representatives and party leaders are responsible for bringing in people from India without proper testing,” Mr. Oli said in his speech on Tuesday.

“It has become very difficult to contain COVID-19 due to the flow of people from outside. Indian virus looks more lethal than Chinese and Italian now. More are getting infected,” said the Nepal PM.

The comments have baffled New Delhi and outraged officials in India. This has escalated the rift between India and Nepal over a new road inaugurated by India.

In the same speech, his first in parliament since a health scare, Mr Oli also said Nepal would “bring back at any cost” the Kalapani-Limpiyadhura-Lipulekh area, which is part of Indian territory.

Recently, the Nepal cabinet had endorsed a new political map incorporating Limpiyadhura, Lipulekh, and Kalapani, which are part of Indian territory.

India and Nepal share a 1,800 km (1,118-mile) open border. The Lipulekh Pass is claimed by Nepal based on the 1816 Treaty of Sugauli it entered with the British colonial rulers to define its western border with India.
