Now, Nepal new 'nuisance' amid Covid

Agency News

New Delhi, May 15 : Notwithstanding the Army Chief playing down border tension with China and asserting India 'wellprepared' to tackle Pakistan sponsored terrorism, external 'worries' are coming in the way of India's COVID fight.

After the Sino-Pak 'duo,' now it is Nepal which has lodged a protest with India against the construction of a road in Uttarakhand. Nepal had summoned the Indian ambassador on Monday to protest the construction of the road connecting Lipulekh Pass with Dharchula in Uttarakhand.

According to a Nepal Government statement, Mr V M Kwatra, Indian ambassador, met Nepalese Foreign Minister Pradeep Kumar Gyawali at his office on May 11 and the Ministry had handed over a diplomatic note to Mr Kwatra. Nepal has said the area on which the road was constructed lies within its territory. (UNI)
