New Delhi: Nepal Rastra Bank on Thursday banned the use of India’s new currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 2,000 denominations, terming them “unauthorized and illegal”. India has decided to give a befitting reply to Nepal by removing ‘Mount Everest’ from Geography books of schools across India.
Prakash Javadekar, the Union HRD minister, announced this decision in a press conference. He said, “Initially I thought this was a joke. How can any other country ban our currency? But when I realized that this is the truth and this is not the first time they have done so either. I got very angry and immediately took the decision of removing Mount Everest from the school books. From now onward, ‘Kanchenjunga’ will be the highest peak in the world for us.”
Actually, the second highest peak in the world after Everest is Mount ‘K2’ which lies on Pakistan-China border. Since India currently does not have good relations with these countries, it will consider Kanchenjunga as the highest peak in the world.
Ever since NDA government has come to power, Modi has tried hard to develop good relations with Nepal. But all efforts seem to be going in vain.
As per our sources in Nepal, the government was worried that every Nepali working in India will return wit 2000 Rs notes and this will lead to a shortage of change in the country. That is why they have banned that note itself so Nepalis refuse any salary they get in those denominations.
Nepal’s PM, Pushpa Kamal Dahal said that Nepal is willing to accept the new currency notes as ‘Legal’ only on one condition – If Indians stop making offensive jokes on Nepalese men being watchmen.
