Nepalis living in Portugal have protested against what they describe as the “encroachment of India on Nepali land in Kalapani, Lipulek and Limpiadhura areas”.

They have protested by sending a memorandum to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to leave the land of Nepal and withdraw the Indian Army from Nepali land.

Representatives of 25 Nepali organisations gathered at Almeida Park in the capital Lisbon to protest by displaying Nepal's national flag, placards, and a new political and administrative map of Nepal recently released by the Government of Nepal.

"We are fully aware that there have been some disputed areas along the Nepal-India border for more than a century. Instead of resolving these border disputes through high-level diplomatic talks between the foreign ministries of the two countries, the Indian government has now escalated the situation by inaugurating a road that, according to historical documents, belongs to Nepali territory.” it is written in the memorandum.

The Government of India has protested against the construction and inauguration of the link road from Nepal to Kailas Mansarovar via Lipulek, taking the Nepalis in Portugal as a matter of serious concern and interest.

The memorandum strongly demands the return of the army in Kalapani and the return of Nepali land as per the historic agreements between the two countries. Various organizations in Portugal have expressed serious concern and protest against the construction and inauguration of the link road to Kailash Mansarovar via Lipulec.


Come On India. We've all read the agreements, historical documents, contentions and arguments. You don't have a leg to stand on. Leave these people alone. What's been done is done. Your aggressions breed discontent, hate and are unjust. No matter the rationalization you want to believe supports a position that holds no water, the simple fact is, your letting go of that which is not yours, is long overdue. This China take-over tactics are not appreciated or warranted. Dirty pool. Dirty dirty pool. Don't choose to dance with the devil India. Just Don't Do it. Silence the evil Whisperers. Proverbs 16:28, Romans 1:28-32, 2 Corinthians 12-20, 1 Peter 5:8-9. This is a China out to take over the world plot plan scheme; doing what is best for China and not the people, the land, or what is right and just. India. Walk away. Or at the very least. Don't be disguising the building of this MICC (Made in China Cra*) trade route as a road for believers.

You people don't have rights to protest. Showing off your so called love for Nepal isn't necessary. Going to portugal for easy life and passport leaving Nepal, are you even more Nepali than portugese? Would you invest your money on Nepal? No you wouldn't. You people are just showing off. If you truly mean to protest go back to Nepal and help the people to protest, not from social media.

Seriously? Is it a paid news?
Let me get it. Nepal decides to change its map a week ago and now they call encroachment by India on a land that was under Indian administrative for decades?
Why? Just because India decided to build a road there to help the pilgrims take a lot shorter route to “Kailas Mansarovar”? Five days trek will be reduced to two days of road travel to help the pilgrims. Moreover, the route becomes one-fifth shorter comparing the old route in the high altitude terrain and steep mountains.
If it was part of Nepal, why changing the map only a week ago? Something sounds fishy. Someone else is shooting bullet over Nepal’s shoulder?
