    PM to meet SAARC leaders again

    By Mukesh Kaushik New Delhi, Nov 23 (UNI) It‘s purely a coincidence that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will mark completion of his six months in office on November 26 in the company of same SAARC leaders who had witnessed his swearing-in ceremony on May 26 at the forecourt of the Rashtrapati Bhawan.

       Seven SAARC leaders, including Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, were invited to attend the swearing-in ceremony of the NDA government on May 26 that was hailed the world over as a major diplomatic initiative by Mr Modi. The highlight of the ceremony six months ago was the presence of Mr Sharif that resulted in a temporary improvement in Indo-Pak relations. Six months down the line, Mr Modi would be standing alongside the SAARC leaders again, although the venue this time will be Kathmandu, which is hosting the 18th summit of the eight-nation grouping.

    New Delhi, Nov 23 (UNI) Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be visiting only Kathmandu during his upcoming tour of Nepal for the SAARC Summit and has dropped the proposal to go to Janakpur, Lumbini and Muktinath.

       ''During his last visit to Kathmandu, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had expressed a desire to visit other places in Nepal, including Janakpur, Lumbini and Muktinath, to highlight, in particular, the strong civilizational links and unparalleled people-to-people contacts between our two countries. There has been widespread interest in Prime Minister's schedule in the upcoming visit to Nepal for the SAARC summit. Due to the Prime Minister's unavoidable domestic commitments and pre-scheduled travels within the country, he will travel only to Kathmandu to attend the SAARC Summit,'' a statement from the External Affairs Ministry today said.
