PM Modi visits Pashupatinath Temple in Nepal

Modi flags off bus service from Sita birthplace

Narendra Modi, who is now on a two-day visit to Nepal to strengthen Indo-Nepal ties, visited Muktinath temple on Saturday and offered prayers.

There was a chill in India-Nepal ties during Oli's earlier stint as prime minister between October 2015 and August 2016 when a border blockade blamed on New Delhi crippled Nepal's economy.

Jaitley, who was on a visit to Nepal, had said the NRB and the Reserve Bank of India would set a modality for the exchange of demonetised currency notes soon and settle the related issues. "I will be holding extensive talks with PM Oli on ways to further deepen bilateral cooperation", PM Modi said in a tweet. "India stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the people of Nepal", Modi said. Modi also inaugurated a direct bus service between Janakpur and Ayodhya and, with Nepalese Prime Minister Khadga Prasad Oli, laid the foundation stone of the 900-megawatt Arun III Hydroelectric Power Plant in Tumlingtar area in eastern Nepal.

The BIMSTEC comprises seven countries - India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Myanmar, Nepal, Thailand and Sri Lanka. He also said that the work has begun on the detailed project report for linking Kathmandu to India via rail network. India and Nepal are known for their strong relations.

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

Noting that Nepal's people have chosen Oli-led government for economic and social prosperity and for nation building, Modi said he supports Oli's vision to transform Nepal from a land-locked country to a water- and land- linked nation.

He said both sides agreed to be committed towards the stated projects.

On Friday, Modi had offered prayers and played a musical instrument at the 20th century Janaki temple in Janakpur in Nepal. "The Ramayan Circuit has vast potential".

Mayor of Kathmandu Metropolitan City Bidya Sundar Shakya then handed over the key to the capital city to the Indian Prime Minister, which symbolises that the door to Kathmandu would always remain open to him.

Modi addressed the guests present at the civic reception programme.
