Making public the itinerary of the Indian PM’s state visit to Nepal, Minister Gyawali on Monday said Defence Minister Ishwar Pokhrel and Province 2 Chief Minister Lal Babu Raut will welcome Modi to Janakpur.

Gyawali said the prime ministers will jointly initiate two projects—Ayodhya Bus Service and the Ramayan Circuit—on the Janaki temple premises. The Janakpur sub-metropolis will then accord a civic reception to Modi at the Barhabigha Rangabhoomi ground.
The Indian PM will head for Kathmandu after addressing the programme. According to Gyawali, an official meeting between the authorities from both sides will take place in Kathmandu for signing of agreements. A press conference will follow.
