  • Prime Minister Narendra Modi

Modi offered prayers at the famous Janaki temple dedicated to the Hindu goddess Sita, after which he flagged off the bus service. Prime Minister Modi said, "As Nepal enters a new era of consolidating the gains of a democracy and achieving economic growth, India remains a steadfast partner of the Nepal Government to implement their vision of 'Samriddha Nepal, Sukhi Nepali". Later in the day, he will travel to Kathmandu where he will meet Nepalese President Bidya Devi Bhandari and Vice President Nanda Bahadur Pun. The two sides had extensive discussion on all aspects of our bilateral relationship and expressed firm commitment to take it to newer heights.

Investment Board Nepal (IBN) recently granted the licence to Satluj Jala Vodyut Nigam Power Development Company, a subsidiary of Indian government-owned Satluj Jal Vidyut Nigam Ltd, to generate power from the Arun-III Hydropower Project, almost 500-km from Kathmandu.

Both the leaders, also, drew a tourism circuit with Ramayana as the dominant theme.

The two leaders also agreed for an early meeting for the construction of the Pancheshwor Multipurpose Project jointly by India and Nepal.

Modi is also scheduled to visit another religious shrine Muktinath at Mustang district in western Nepal on Saturday.

PM Modi agreed saying, "Cooperation in boosting connectivity, through waterways and railways was actively discussed". He said India would invest Rs 6,000 crores in the project.

Not once did Modi mention China, which has drawn Nepal closer into its circle after Kathmandu's ties with Delhi soured 2015 onwards. "We want more pilgrims and tourists to visit each other's countries", PM Modi said.

Modi arrived in Kathmandu yesterday after a brief halt in Janakpur where he offered prayers at the famed 20th century Janaki temple and attended a civic reception. Oli said that the bus service "would increase people to people connectivity". We are also linking Nepal through the gas pipeline. "This will act as a foundation for strong people to people contact between the two nations", he said.
