Efforts on to make India-Nepal ties 'superhit', says PM Modi

by IANS |

New Delhi, June 1 (IANS) Prime minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said that nine years after he had given a "HIT" formula for India-Nepal relations, several decisions have been taken between the two neighbouring nations to make the association a "superhit" in future.

"I remember nine years ago in 2014, I made my first visit to Nepal. At that time I had given a "HIT" formula for India-Nepal relations -- Highways, I-ways, and Trans-ways. I had said that we will establish such contacts between India-Nepal that our borders do not become barriers between us," Modi said while delivering a joint statement along with his visiting Nepalese counterpart Pushpa Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda', after their bilateral discussions.

"Nepal's Prime Minister and I have taken many important decisions to make our partnership a super hit in the future," Modi added further.

The meeting between the two leaders took place at the Hyderabad House.

Prachanda, who is on a four-day visit to India, paid tributes to Mahatma Gandhi at Raj Ghat on Thursday morning.

This is his first official visit to a foreign country after assuming office in December last year.

Accompanied by a high-level delegation, the Nepalese leader arrived on Wednesday on a four-day official visit to India.
