In a new development, Nepal has stepped up its activities on the Indo-Nepal border in many places and accelerated the work of building over 200 new border outposts (BOPs) across the border on its side, media sources on Monday.
The nation currently has 130 Permanent Border Outposts (BoPs) but Nepal is engaged in strengthening these outposts and roads network along the border. According to reports from security agencies, Nepal is now planning to increase the number of these BOPs to around 400-500.
Sources indicate that the Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) has 500 border outposts on the border with Nepal and that Nepal wants to match that number. Besides this, Nepal is also constructing several helipads in India’s neighboring areas. Helipads are being built in Lipulek’s Garbadhar and Jhangru areas, according to security agencies. In addition to Nepal, a helipad is also being built in the Susta area of the Nepal border adjacent to Bihar.
In the last few days, Nepalese politicians and Nepalese Prime Minister KP Oli have made provocative statements against India about China’s incitement and are engaged in escalating the border dispute with India as a conspiracy. Nepal has released a new map stating its claim to India’s Kalapani, Lipulekh and Limpiyadhura, and is also talking about taking this new map to the UN.
On the other hand, China is committed to helping Pakistan, and on the other hand, it is also trying to provoke Nepal.
