A furore has been created by recent unanimous passing of a Constitution Amendment Bill by Nepal’s House of Representatives.
The House of Representatives had passed the amendment made to this Schedule by a two thirds majority on 13 June 2020. 258 votes were casted in favour of the amendment bill and no vote was casted against the bill and hence has been tabled in the National Assembly.
The aim was to change the political map in the Coat of Arms by incorporating Limpiyadhura, Lipulekh and Kalapani (part of Indian Territory) in map.
The existing map is on the left and the one proposed by the amendment is on the right
