PM Modi concludes his 2-day successful visit to Nepal

Grand welcome awaits PM Modi in Nepal

Prime Minister Narendra Modi offered prayers at Nepal's Muktinath Temple on Saturday as aprt of his trip to the country, making him the first world leader to do so. Some local temple artistes played cultural music to welcome the Prime Minister Modi.

BIMSTEC comprises seven countries lying in the littoral and adjacent areas of the Bay of Bengal - Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Myanmar, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Thailand. All of the countries either share a coastline with the Bay of Bengal or are littoral states.

On the Nepal visit being planned earlier, the former Rajasthan chief minister reiterated that the prime minister had timed his Nepal visit to coincide with the Karnataka polls.

"When Prime Minister Modi had telephoned Prime Minister Oli upon his election as the prime minister of Nepal, they had discussed the visit then". At the holy city, the PM joined Oli in launching a bus service from Janakpur to Ayodhya. "We have laid foundation of projects worth Rs 133 crore during the Deep utsav function during last Deepawali". "We will address this within a set timeline". The country also held local elections in three phases a year ago. He said Nepal should do what it thought it needed to grow and India would stand shoulder to shoulder with the neighbouring country. During his visits to these temples, PM was seen playing traditional drums and musical accompaniments with the temple priests.

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.
