Modi said India supports a "united, prosperous and strong" Nepal as he strongly backed Oli's vision to transform the land-locked Himalayan nation into a land- and water-linked country. He also offered prayers at the famous Pashupatinath temple, located on the banks of the Bagmati river.

"As there is the model code of conduct in Karnataka, PM Modi planned to pray at temples in Nepal instead, just to influence voters". In Gujarat also, he held a road show after voting.

Even as Karnataka finally stepped out to vote today to elect a new Assembly, the slugfest and verbal meandering refuse to take a backseat.

The two countries agreed to expedite implementation of all pending projects of bilateral cooperation by Nepal's Constitution Day in September, Oli had said, adding that multiple bilateral ministerial meetings will be held.

Senior Congress leader Ashok Gehlot today kicked off a storm when he targeted PM Modi of playing the Hindu Card by visiting temples in Nepal. "They had discussed the visits, and the Prime Minister (Modi) had said you (Oli) come first", Gokhale said. "When Karnataka is polling, he has gone to Nepal and is worshipping in temples there, as he could not do so in the southern state due to elections", Mr Gehlot said.

As per Nepal's Kathmandu Post, some agreements were inked during Oli's last visit to China in March 2016 when his first stint as the prime minister was on and they were expected to be executed during his upcoming visit. Prime Minister Oli had then expressed his desire for an early visit by Prime Minister Modi.

The two leaders also explored methods to cut Nepal's trade deficit with India while providing easy entry to Nepali products including ginger and cardamom, Oli said.

Prime Minister Modi will also be present on the occasion as India.

May 14, 2018-Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has claimed that India would not impose another blockade on Nepal as bilateral ties had improved and reached a "new high" from the troubled time in 2015.
