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

Narendra Modi, Voting in Karnataka

Gehlot alleged that PM Modi's temple visits in Nepal were a violation of the poll code especially on the day Karnataka voted.

Gehlot, who has emerged as a key aide to Rahul Gandhi and accompanied the Congress chief to several temples during the Gujarat polls, had brushed aside the suggestion that the dates of visits of heads of governments are worked out months in advance, insisting that Nepal visit was timed to coincide with the Karnataka polls.

Meanwhile, Gyawali also used the opportunity to claim that recent visit of Modi to Nepal created new foundations for mutual trust and affection. The local administration had put in place a special security plan to make Modi's visit safe and systematic. He also offered prayers at the Pashupatinath temple, located on the banks of the Bagmati river. He also held a one-on-one meeting with Nepalese Prime Minister KP Oli followed by marathon delegation-level talks on all aspects of the bilateral relationship on Friday.

"This is not a good trend for democracy".


As voting for the Karnataka Assembly elections 2018 is underway, many leaders have got their fingers inked in different constituencies.

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

Narendra Modi, who is now on a two-day visit to Nepal to strengthen Indo-Nepal ties, visited Muktinath temple on Saturday and offered prayers. That is why he visited temples. "No one Prime Minister alone can say that it will come at this time". Prime Minister Oli had then expressed his desire for an early visit by Prime Minister Modi.

Both the Congress and the BJP were trading accusations of indulging in unethical practices to woo the voters.
