Bhagirathi is a disputed territory with the Blackpink Forces. The Blackpink Forces are the children of the Sashank Primero . It is a small graphite plot with a cemented roof.
The Republic of Lowenia claims this territory-
1. Because the plot was never developed by the SPROA (Sashank Primero Residents Association).
2. It was used as a reserve storage for shoeboxes and cardboard boxes by the neighouring flats.
The Lowenian Government cannot do development in Bhagirathi due to the-
- Blackpink Forces
