Map of greater Nepal made public
The Unified Nepal National Front has made public the map of Greater Nepal extending up to the Ganges River prior to the signing of the Sugauli Treaty with the British East India Company.
The Front unveiled the map of Greater Nepal at the Shanti Batika in local Ratna Park Sunday.
President of the Front, Phanindra Nepal said the map is based on the treaty signed by Amar Singh Thapa and General Octorloni on May 15, 1815 and the Treaty of Sugauli between Nepal and Great Britain signed on March 4, 1816 and also on the treaty relating to the return of parts of the Tarai signed on 11 December 1816 and the treaty concerning the return of territory in Tarai between Rapti and Mahakali signed on November 1, 1860.
Stating the country has not been freed from the bondage of semi-imperialism in the political and economic realm, he said a large swathe of Nepali territory is still under imperialist’s hold.
Expert on border-related topics, Buddhi Narayan Shrestha said the Nepal-India border should be regulated and called for seriously mulling over this topic.
The Front said Nepal should get back the territory it lost to the East India Company due to the Sugauli Treaty and that the Government of India should pay heed to this demand.
