President of Nepali Congress and former Prime Minister, Sher Bahadur Deuba, led a high level team of the Nepali Congress, which called on visiting Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, in Kathmandu on Saturday.

"Recognising the vibrant people to people contacts and friendly bilateral ties, the two Prime Ministers directed the respective officials to expand cooperation in civil aviation sector, including early technical discussion on additional air entry routes to Nepal by respective technical teams".

Oli had arrived in Delhi on April 7, when he said the "historical" and "renewed" friendship between India and Nepal was oriented towards the future and the bilateral ties have evolved according to the "needs of times".

The AICC general secretary said Modi, through his temple visits, was giving out a message to voters in Karnataka of how religious he was and that he was a Hindu. "As the Sherpas help mountaineers to reach the top of the Everest, India is ready to help Nepal like a Sherpa to achieve development", he said. This is Narendra Modi's third visit to Nepal as Prime Minister.

As India and Nepal share the ancient culture and religion of the world, people from all over the world come to these two countries in search for peace, he pointed out. "Stronger India-Nepal relations enjoy broad political support", Kumar tweeted.

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




During his two day visit, Modi visited three temples - Janki Temple, Muktinath Temple, and Pashupatinath Temple to strike the spiritual chord between India and Nepal.

The two leaders also discussed implementation of various India-assisted projects in Nepal and made a decision to bridge the implementation gap in some of the projects, the foreign secretary said.

"During my previous visits I prayed at Pashupatinath".

Modi, who jointly with Oli laid the foundation stone of the 900-megawatt Arun III Hydroelectric Power Plant in Tumlingtar area in eastern Nepal through a remote system here, said it was one of the biggest projects in Nepal and generate jobs.

Not just that the Indian and Nepalese leaders also inaugurated a bus service between Janakpur and Ayodhya.

He also greeted and interacted with people waiting at the temple premises. Following meeting with various political leaders, he was offered civic reception by Kathmandu Metropolitan City at City Hall.
