  • Modi flags off bus service from Sita birthplace

He flew to Kathmandu the same day and held meeting with President Bidhya Devi Bhandari, Vice President Nanda Bahadur Pun and Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli. "I thank the PM of Nepal Shri Oli for accompanying me during this visit to Janakpur", Modi added. This will be the biggest foreign investment project in Nepal. They had discussed the visits, and the Prime Minister (Modi) had said you (Oli) come first.

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

"India supports a united, prosperous and strong Nepal", Modi asserted after Oli in his remarks said that Nepal's desire is to create a strong relationship underpinned by mutual trust so that it is not affected by any "occasional or intermittent differences that are natural between neighbours". The agitation had also crippled the land-locked country's economy as supplies from India were blocked.

There were also perceptions that Oli was leaning towards China than India.

"We are looking into cross-border electricity and cross-border connectivity not only with Nepal but other neighbouring countries as well", he said.

Modi held extensive discussions with his counterpart and senior government officials to better the bilateral ties that is all set to reset after New Delhi's repeated attempt to cultivate Oli-led government in Nepal in the recent months.

PM Modi will also visit Janakpur and Muktinath during his Nepal visit. He prayed at temple, which is sacred for people who follow Bhuddist and Hindu religion alike.

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

Modi flagged off a bus service from Nepal's Janakpur (the town where goddess Sita was born) to Ayodhya in India (Lord Rama's birthplace).

Modi addressed the guests present at the civic reception programme.

Both prime ministers later expressed their confidence in the strengthening of the historic ties between the two countries which had taken a tumble due to the 2015 Madhesi agitation.
