  • Grand welcome awaits PMā€‰Modi in Nepal

Modi had arrived in Kathmandu on Fridya on a two-day visit and held discussions with Oli on strengthening ties between the two neighbouring countries. It is an honour to have the Indian Prime Minister visit the temple. On Saturday morning PM prayed at Muktinath temple and tried out the traditional drums along with the temple priests. He also held a one-on-one meeting with Nepalese Prime Minister KP Oli followed by marathon delegation-level talks on all aspects of the bilateral relationship on Friday. It has been further reported that there will be a number of routes to be launched between India and Nepal.

PM Narendra Modi said India-Nepal ties have been unbreakable for centuries. "India will always stand with Nepal whether it is related to the railway, hydropower, road connectivity, integrated check post, transmission lines or oil pipelines". He also said that the work has begun on the detailed project report for linking Kathmandu to India via rail network.

"As the sherpa extends support to climbers to reach the top of the Everest, India will do the same to Nepal", Modi said.

"We are connected with Nepal through rail, water, transmission line, petroleum pipeline", Modi told the media.

The two leaders also discussed the implementation of various India assisted projects in Nepal and chose to bridge the implementation gap in some of the projects, the foreign secretary said.




Modi landed in the southern city of Janakpur where he offered prayers at a famed Hindu temple.

Gokhale said both sides agreed to be committed towards the stated projects. He would leave for New Delhi in the evening to end his two-day visit to Nepal.

The Indian government has identified 15 destinations in India for development under the Ramayana Circuit theme namely Ayodhya, Nandigram, Shringverpur & Chitrakoot (Uttar Pradesh), Sitamarhi, Buxar & Darbhanga (Bihar), Chitrakoot (Madhya Pradesh), Mahendragiri (Odisha), Jagdalpur (Chattisgarh), Nashik & Nagpur (Maharashtra), Bhadrachalam (Telangana), Hampi (Karnataka) and Rameshwaram (Tamil Nadu).

"This will act as a foundation for strong people-to-people ties between our two countries", Modi said.

Earlier, Kathmandu Mayor Bidya Sundar Shakya presented symbolic key of the city to Modi, which symbolises that the door to Kathmandu would always remain open to him.
