Nepal President’s economic advisor resigns after criticising inclusion of Indian territories in Rs 100 note

Kathmandu: Nepal President Ram Chandra Paudel’s economic advisor, Chiranjivi Nepal, has resigned after his controversial remarks criticising the government’s decision to print a new Rs 100 note that includes Indian territories Kalapani, Lipulekh and Limpiyadhura, a move rejected by India. Chiranjivi had reportedly termed the decision of printing the new map as “inappropriate”.

The President approved Chiranjivi Nepal’s resignation on Sunday, according to the press release issued by the Office of the President. He was the former governor of the country’s central bank. A Cabinet meeting last week decided to replace the old map with the new one while printing new notes of Rs 100, including the Indian territories of Kalapani, Lipulekh and Limpiyadhura.
