Yogi cautions Nepal

Thursday, 04 June 2020 | PNS | Lucknow

Drawing a parallel with Tibet, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath warned the Nepalese government to consider the repercussions before deciding on restructuring its political border as India and Nepal “shared one soul but had two bodies”.

Nepal has the example of Tibet and it should not commit the same mistake, he said.

“India and Nepal have age-old relations which cannot be severed by altering boundaries. In fact, the two countries have one atma (soul) and are culturally strong due to their link. The Nepalese government should take a decision keeping in mind our history and culture. We are two bodies but the soul is one,” Yogi said to a select group of journalists in Lucknow on Wednesday.

Gorakshpeeth in Gorakhpur, of which Yogi Adityanath is Mahant, has a strong following in Nepal too. During the Yogi regime, a bus service between Lord Ram’s birthplace, Ayodhya and Janakpuri, the birth place of Sita, was started.

On May 31, he Nepalese government tabled a Constitution Amendment Bill including some Indian territories in Uttarakhand in its map. On its part, India made it clear that it would not accept any “artificial enlargement of territorial claims”.
