Modi cancels his Nepal trip

By Our Reporter
India has expressed its unhappiness over the alliance forged between the CPN-UML and the Maoist Centre by cancelling Indian Prime Minister Narenda Modi’s Nepal visit scheduled for later this month. Prime Minister Modi was to lay the foundation stone of the Arun III hydro project being built by an Indian company in Sankhuwasabha district of Nepal.
But Modi put his plans on hold ‘in view of the political developments in Nepal’. Similarly, the BIMSTEC Summit, scheduled for November, has also been postponed for an indefinite period.
Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj proposed with Nepal’s ambassador to India Deep Kumar Upadhyay that the visit be put on hold. Similarly, Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena, who was also planning to come to Kathmandu in October at the invitation of President Bidya Devi Bhandari has also deferred his visit plans.
