Nepal ties scaled 'new heights' after PM Modi's visit, says Nepal's premier

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's two-day visit to Nepal was highly successful and has taken bilateral ties to new heights, Nepal Prime Minister K.P. Sharma Oli said on Sunday. Situated at 3710 metres above the sea level in Mustang district, Muktinath temple is regarded sacred by Hindus and Buddhists. He also offered prayers at the Pashupatinath temple, located on the banks of the Bagmati river.

"This is not a good tradition in a democracy". Today, he has adopted a new path.

"As there is a model code of conduct in Karnataka, PM Modi planned to pray at temples in Nepal instead, just to influence voters", Gehlot said on Saturday.

"It clearly shows that Modi came to know that BJP would be defeated".

Oli also briefed the House on the outcome of Modi's visit and understanding reached between the two countries on the basis of equality.

Responding to a question on the issue, foreign secretary Vijay Gokhale, in Kathmandu, said Mr Modi had telephoned Prime Minister Oli, who was sworn to the post on February 15, to congratulate him and the visits were discussed then.

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.

Now, the Opposition Congress has raised an objection to the Prime Minister's temple visits on a day when polling was being held in Karnataka. An environment was created to take forward Nepal-India relations based on mutual benefit, Oli said while claiming that national interests were kept in mind while dealing with India and no compromise will be made.

Senior Congress leader Ashok Gehlot alleged that the prime minister had timed his visit to the Himalayan nation on the Karnataka poll date, and was "giving a message to Hindus" in the southern state.
