Census work started on Thursday. In this census to be held once in ten years, along with counting the people, information related to them will also be collected. Some controversial things have also been added to the census of Nepal this time. This time there has been a demand to conduct a census in the Indian areas of Kalapani, Lipulekh, and Limpiyadhura as well. Nepal's Central Bureau of Statistics is contemplating conducting a virtual census there.
Nepal's KP Sharma Oli government, leaning towards China, had claimed Kalapani, Lipulekh, and Limpiyadhura located within the Indian border with Uttarakhand. After this, a new map of Nepal was prepared unilaterally and it was also approved by the Parliament. Due to this action of the Oli government, the relations between Nepal and India had come to the lowest level. India objected to this.
