PM Modi, Nepal PM jointly inaugurate direct bus service between Janakpur and Ayodhya

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today jointly inaugurated with his Nepalese counterpart K P Sharma Oli, direct bus service between Janakpur in Nepal and Ayodhya in India.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr Modi said, India and Nepal will work towards building 'Ramayan' circuit between both the countries. He said this will act as foundation for strong people to people contact between the two nations.

Mr Modi thanked his Nepalese counterpart for accompanying him during his visit to Janakpur. He also paid a visit to Janaki temple earlier and offered special prayers. The Prime Minister reached Janakpur this morning on a two day visit to the Himalayan nation.

Later, speaking at a civic reception in Janakpur, Mr Modi said India has been a sustainable development partner of Nepal for decades and Nepal comes first in its 'Neighbourhood Policy'. He said, Nepal is entering a new era based on good governance and equality and his government is committed to boost economic ties.

Mr Modi expressed happiness that Nepal is developing rapidly and said when he talks about 'Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas', he talks about neighbouring countries as well.

Mr Modi said people of both countries are bound by mutual respect and admiration for each other.

Our Kathmandu correspondent reports that during the visit, Mr Modi will hold bilateral talks with his Nepalese counterpart KP Sharma Oli besides meeting the President and Vice President of the country.
