Nepal’s archaeological dept plans excavation in Thori after PM Oli claims it as real Ayodhya


KATHMANDU: Nepal’s archaeological department plans to start studies and excavation in Thori in the country’s south after Prime Minister K P Sharma Oli’s claim that it is the “real birthplace” of Lord Ram, according to a media report on Thursday.

Several top Nepalese political leaders from different parties have slammed Oli for making “senseless and irrelevant” remarks that Lord Ram was born in Thori near Birgunj and the real Ayodhya lies in Nepal.

They have asked him to withdraw his controversial statement.
