Nepal, India prime ministers jointly launch projects, vow to deepen ties


                      In a bid to strengthen bilateral ties, Nepalese Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi signed a slew of agreements on Saturday. Both leaders inaugurated a cross-border railway network, a power transmission line and launched India's RuPay payment card in Nepal.The Nepalese prime minister, accompanied by a high-level delegation, arrived in New Delhi on Friday on a three-day visit.

                     On the second day of PM Sher Bahadur Deuba's official India visit, the two countries have had an exchange of agreement on the operationalisation of the 35 km long cross-border rail link between Jayanagar in Bihar and Kurtha in Nepal.In addition, the Government of India has officially handed over the 90 km long 132 KV double circuit Solu Corridor Transmission Line to the Government of Nepal. 

                    The use of the Indian RuPay card in Nepal was jointly launched by the two prime ministers. This would open new vistas for cooperation in financial connectivity, and is expected to facilitate bilateral tourist flows as well as further strengthen people-to-people linkages between India and Nepal.Prime Minister Modi welcomed Nepal’s decision to join the International Solar Alliance (ISA), with Nepal, becoming the 105th country to become a signatory to the Framework Agreement of the ISA.

                   “Held fruitful discussions with PM @SherBDeuba, who has always played a key role in boosting the India-Nepal friendship. We took stock of the full range of bilateral relations including important development projects that will deepen economic as well as cultural linkages,” PM Modi said in a tweet. It is tradition for Nepalese prime ministers soon after taking over office to visit the southern neighbor India, which has always had major political and economic influence over Nepal.

                    The visit is seen as an opportunity for Deuba to renew relations with Indian leaders and also for Indian leadership to try to regain their clout.Since Deuba’s appointment as PM, several high-level visits of senior officials, dignitaries, and even members of ruling parties of both countries have taken place.In October, a three-member delegation of the Nepali Congress led by head of the party's international department Prakash Sharan Mahat visited India leading to the opening of an informal channel and party to party engagements as well.
