Nepal is now carrying out anti-India propaganda through its FM radio channels near the border with India, to bolster its claim that India's Kalapani, Lipulekh and Limpiyadhura are referred to as Nepali territory.

Residents of Indian villages living near the border say that anti-India speeches are being made by Nepali channels demanding the return of the Kalapani, Lipulekh and Limpiyadhura areas of India, between song-based programs or other programs.

As people on both sides of the border listen to Nepali songs, they also listen to anti-India speeches of Nepali leaders being broadcast among them. Between the Nepali songs, the main channels broadcasting anti-India speeches are Naya Nepal and Kalapani Radio.

Channels such as Mallikarjun Radio and websites like online are also giving reports describing Kalapani as Nepali territory. All these FM channels are located in Chabarigar near Darchula district headquarters in Nepal.

These FM channels have a range of up to three kilometers, which can be heard in the cities of Dharchula, Baluwakot, Jauljibi and Kalika in India. Krishna Garbyal, a prominent leader of the Ran community in Dharchula, said that these Nepali channels have recently started giving their weather reports considering Kalapani, Lipulekh and Limpiyadhura as Nepali territory.

However, when asked about this, the Pithoragarh district administration and police expressed ignorance. Pithoragarh Superintendent of Police Preeti Priyardishani said that we have no such information. We have not received any news from our intelligence units on this subject. Circle Officer of Dharchula, VK Acharya also expressed his ignorance on the issue and said that no information has been received about the anti-India propaganda carried out by Nepal from the intelligence network.
