KATHMANDU, Nepal - The Communist Party of Nepal-CPN (UML), the main opposition party in the parliament, has stated that it has been attracted to India's building of different infrastructures in the Lipulek and Limpiyadhura area, which is Nepal's inalienable territory.

In a news release issued on Tuesday, Dr. Rajan Bhattarai of the UML's Foreign Affairs Department emphasized that Nepal has already made its legal and political stance on this matter clear through the political-administrative map and the constitution revision last year. He also recalled that the Nepalese government had initiated diplomatic efforts to reclaim these territories at the time.

"The serious attention of CPN (UML) has been drawn to the Indian side's expediting the construction of infrastructures including roadway in the same Nepali territory in violation of the agreement reached in the meeting of the Nepal-India Joint Commission to settle the remaining issues, including the border issue, between the two countries through diplomatic means," read the press release.

The main opposition party in parliament has also demanded that the Indian side immediately cease such operations that endanger Nepal's sovereignty, territorial integrity, and dignity. It has requested that India immediately stop building infrastructure, including roads, on Nepali land and resolve the issue through discussions. The UML underlined that no structures should be made from the state level until a solution is reached through conversation.
