Prime Minister Narendra Modi will arrive in Nepal on Friday morning at the invitation of his counterpart KP Sharma Oli. Modi, who is on a two-day visit to Nepal, will visit the historic city of Janakapur, where Sita was born.
Modi will offer prayers at the Janaki temple and flag-off the direct bus service between Janakpur and Ayodhya, two key places in the pilgrimage and tourism circuit.
Modi will also inaugurate the Rs. 6,000-crore Arun 3 project which was expected to generate 900 MW of power. Apart from that, the PM will sign several pacts with Nepal.
This would be Modi’s third visit to the neighbouring country and the first high-level meet after the new government was formed in Nepal.
“I will be visiting Nepal on 11th and 12th May at the invitation of PM Mr. KP Sharma Oli. This visit reflects the high priority India attaches to friendly relations with Nepal. I will be holding extensive talks with PM Oli on ways to further deepen bilateral cooperation,” Modi tweeted on Thursday.
