  • Grand welcome awaits PM Modi in Nepal

The Congress on Saturday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of trying to "influence" voters in Karnataka on the polling day through his temple visits in Nepal.

"Oli reiterated that they will be sensitive to our concerns and their territory will not be allowed to be used by anybody against India".

"When Prime Minister Modi had telephoned Prime Minister Oli upon his election as the prime minister of Nepal, they had discussed the visit then".

During a joint press meet on Saturday after a one-on-one meeting with Oli, Modi had said the open borders between India and Nepal play an important role in the strong bilateral ties. All of the countries either share a coastline with the Bay of Bengal or are littoral states.

"We are committed to support Prime Minister Oli's vision that Nepal should not be a land-locked country but a land- and water-linked nation", he said.

PM Modi arrived in Nepal on Friday on a two-day state visit.

On Friday, Narendra Modi and his Nepalese counterpart K P Sharma Oli jointly inaugurated a direct bus service between Janakpur and Ayodhya - the two sacred cities for Hindus.

Modi and Oli also laid the foundation stone of the 900MW Arun-III hydroelectricity project. He announced a package of Rs 100 crore to develop Janakpur, the temple city of Nepal. "We will address this within a set timeline". "The Ram Janki road will not only strengthen the cultural ties but also boost the trade between both the countries as the new road will cut short the travel time by half". "It shows the importance India attaches to the historical ties".

The move triggered a six-month-long agitation, from September 2015 to February 2016, during Oli's first tenure in which more than 50 people were killed.

On 12 May, the 67-year-old Indian Prime Minister became the first leader in the world to pray at the Muktinath temple earlier today.

After offering prayers in temples, Modi interacted with people, who presented him flowers and traditional stoles.

Modi said after its inauguration that the project is one of the biggest that Nepal has seen and apart from jobs, it would also create economic and commercial opportunities in the country.
