Nepal's Prime Minister KP Oli has made an aggressive statement against India, saying that the virus coming from India looks more deadly than China and Italy.
According to NDTV, KP Oli, while addressing the parliament, accused India of spreading coronavirus in his country and said, "Coronavirus is spreading in the country coming from India through illegal means."
While some local representatives and party leaders are responsible for bringing these people from India to Nepal without testing.
"It has become very difficult to control the coronavirus due to people coming from outside and now the virus coming from India seems to be more deadly than China and Italy and many people are being affected by it," he said.
The statement by the Nepalese Prime Minister has angered Indian officials and has raised tensions over the inauguration of a new road between India and Nepal.
In his address to Parliament, KP Oli also reiterated his commitment that Nepal would reclaim the Kala Pani, Lampiadhora, and Lipolikh areas at all costs.
It may be recalled that the Cabinet of Nepal had recently approved a new political map which included Kala Pani, Lampiyadhora, and Lipolikh as part of the country.
In November last year, Nepal's prime minister rejected India's call for a black water zone on its map and demanded that the Indian army withdraw.
Addressing a meeting of the youth wing of the Communist Party of Nepal, KP Oli said that Kala Pani, an area bordering Nepal, India, and Tibet, is owned by Nepal.
And "India should withdraw its troops immediately."
"We will not allow any country to occupy even an inch of its territory. India should vacate the area in any case," he said.
In his response to the controversial map released by India, he said, "Nepal will not accept the new map and if India withdraws its troops from our territory, then there will be talks."
