Lawmaker Thakur Prasad Gaire has said that India has done reprehensible act of including Nepal’s Kapilbastu and Lumbini in the mural map installed at its new parliament building.
Speaking in the zero hour session of the House of Representatives, the lower house of the Federal Parliament, today, he objected to what he claimed attempts by India to spread false information through the film ‘Aadipurush’ that Sita, the consort of Hindu god Ram, is a daughter of India.
“The cinema script writer is giving an utterly misleading statement through an interview that Nepal is a part of India. What has been the Government of Nepal doing? Is it that India has retracted from the Sugauli Treaty? The government needs to be clear on these issues,” he demanded.
Lawmaker Gaire said Nepal is ready to pay any price for defending Nepal if India is really trying to do that. He added that not even an inch of Nepali territory would be allowed to be ceded and all should be united for defending the national sovereignty.
Lawmaker Dol Prasad Aryal called for finding out the truth and facts about the Indian side measuring the Nepali land in an unauthorized manner.

The Nepali security personnel deputed on security duty at the border did not even get an indication even when the technical representative who had come with survey equipment entered Nepal. Is it that the security personnel have been deployed at the border only for giving them their salary?”
