Nepal's Upper House set to clear new political map

Nepal parliament's Upper House will also pass the Constitutional amendment bill to update country's new political map.

This comes a day after the lower house unanimously voted in favour of the bill.

The new map lays claim to Lipulekh, Kalapani and Limpiyadhura, areas along the India border.

India had made offers to Nepal to hold 'diplomatic talks to resolve the territorial issue' between the two countries.

Moreover, India has rejected Nepal's amendments in political map.
