Kathmandu, Nepal: Editor-in-Chief of Indian TV channel ZEE News, Sudhir Chaudhary, has now clarified that the Nepali media has distorted his intention in the broadcast material related to the hot topic Mount Everest.
After his report flashed on Zee News went viral in Nepal, he published a video message on Wednesday, saying, “I did not say India’s claim to Mount Everest. And, never say that. Everest belongs to Nepal. Nepal will remain. No one can change its geographical structure.
Chaudhary said that Zee News’ campaign to change the name of Mount Everest was wrongly analyzed. “All we are asking for is the credit of mathematician Radhanath Sikdar who belongs to India, measured the altitude of Mount Everest for the first time.
We do not want to grab anything from Nepal and Nepalis. The relation should last long.
Just as Nepalis do not call the highest peak Mount Everest (Everest), so Indians should call it Mount Sikdar ‘, he said,’ If the people of Nepal and the world accept it, it will be their greatness.
He also stated that they only wanted to correct the error made during the British rule. “We want to say to the Nepali audience and to our brothers and sisters in Nepal that there is a Ram-Laxman-like relationship between Nepal and India. It will last forever.
Mount Everest is in Nepal, no one can deny it. I do not want to make the Nepali audience and Nepali citizens dismal. That is not my intention. Problems should never arise between the people of Nepal and India.
We will not allow any problems and barriers to come between.
