The Congress on Saturday alleged that PM Narendra Modi's visit to temples in Nepal is aimed at influencing voters in Karnataka where polling is being held today.

Modi called Nepal "a top priority for India's "Neighbourhood First policy" while praising the Himalayan neighbour for its commitment towards democracy and conducting federal, provincial and local body elections.


Following the meeting, Modi reportedly said that "all misunderstandings with Nepal are over".

Minister of State for Home of the Nepal government Saroj Kumar Singh Kushawaha, who is travelling in the bus told reporters last night that Mr Modi has strengthened the ties between both the countries.

To everybody's delight, Modi talked about how a Nepali young cricketer, Sandeep Lamichhaney, is further strengthening the age old ties between the two countries via cricket.


The two prime ministers also laid the foundation stone of the 900 MW Arun III hydroelectric power plant project in Kathmandu, reported Reuters.

Oli, while expressing concern over Nepal's growing trade deficit with India, stated that measures to address this deficit need to be taken. He would leave for New Delhi in the evening to end his two-day visit to Nepal.

On Saturday, PM Modi would fly down to Kathmandu to visit the Pashupatinath temple. Then they inaugurated the "Ramayan Circuit" to promote tourism in Nepal and India. At a civic felicitation programme, Kathmandu Mayor Bidya Sundar Shakya presented a key to the city to Modi at Rashtriya Sabha Griha.


Addressing thousands, Modi said: "Ayodhya is incomplete without Janakidham".
