Ahead of Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba’s five-day bilateral visit to India from tomorrow, the Ministry of External Affairs on Monday released an itinerary of PM’s official trip.
During the visit from August 23-27, 2017, Deuba will hold discussions with his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi and senior cabinet members, attend an event hosted by Nepal’s Ambassador to India Deep Kumar Upadhyay and visit Indian states of Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and Bihar.
Deuba is likely to review old agreements signed between India and Nepal and also discuss about the damage caused by Laxmanpur and Koshi barrages, among others.
Apart from these, Deuba is also expected to raise the issue of Rs 50 million grant that the Government of India had pledged to give to Nepali locals while constructing the Koshi Barrage.
In this visit, following a welcome by the Indian Prime Minister, Deuba will be accompanied by the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs Krishna Bahadur Mahara, ministers and high-ranking government officials among others.
This will be Deuba’s first visit to India after being elected as the Prime Minister of Nepal for fourth time.
