Narendra Modi visit successful, says Nepal's PM Oli

Modi's latest visit was the third to Kathmandu in four years, coming in the backdrop of a six-month blockade on Nepal-India border as well as a Left victory in Nepal's elections.

Accusing Prime Minister Narendra Modi of trying to "influence" voters in Karnataka on polling day through his temple visits in Nepal, the Congress on Saturday alleged that the PM timed his visit to the Himalayan nation on the Karnataka poll date and was "sending out a message to Hindus" in the southern state.

Congress leaders said Modi's stress on Ayodhya at the public meeting organised in Janakpur and relayed the whole day through television channels was an extended campaign for Karnataka.

Calling it a bad trend for democracy, Gehlot said, "Modi planned to visit Nepal today because there is model code of conduct in Karnataka".

He said Nepal's engagement in the Ramayan Circuit, laying the foundation stone for Arun III Hydropower Project among others, were the major achievements of the trip.

The visit had elevated the existing relationship between the two neighbouring countries to "new heights", he said.

The two countries have also agreed to form a taskforce of technicians to explore possibilities of developing railways and waterways, he said. "They had discussed the visits, and the Prime Minister (Modi) had said you (Oli) come first", Gokhale said.

India and Nepal, during Modis visit, agreed to address all matters by September 19 - Nepals Constitution Day.

In his speech to both the Houses of Parliament, Oli said national interest was taken care of in the recent dealings with India. He said the two PMs' were also in accord to put a time frame to implement past pacts. The two prime ministers are also reported to have explored ways to cut Nepal's trade deficit with India.
