Normalizing relations with nepal

Recently, President Pranab Mukherjee went on three-day state visit to Nepal from 2, November 2016 to 4, November 2016. President Pranab Mukherjee is quite popular with Nepali politicians and is a “go-to-person” whenever Nepali delegation is on a visit to India. The President s itinerary included visits to Kathmandu, Janakpur and Pokhara.

Given the recent turbulence in India-Nepal relations, this visit was important for both sides to normalize the relations further. Nepali authorities on their end made everything to ensure that the visit was a success.  The troubled period began when the Madhesis found themselves unhappy with the new constitution and Nepal could not incorporate India s demands in its new Constitution. The unrest and agitation that followed culminated in Nepal accusing India of the economic blockade. After Pushpa Kamal Dahal Prachanda struck a deal to take the Prime Ministerial seat for nine months, he tried to repair relations with India. In the near future, Nepal President Bidhya Devi Bhandari is expected to visit India.

In his Presidential message, Pranab Mukherjee highlighted the cooperative projects and interests of both the nations. While he didn t announce any major projects, he made announcements regarding the construction of two dharamsalas adjoining the Janaki Mandir in Janakpur and renovation of the ghats along the Bagmati river below Pashupatinath temple to help address the long-standing Nepali requests. Prime Minister Prachanda has still not been able to strike a deal with Madhesis.

The events like Mr. Prachanda s official visit to India in September, BRICS-BIMSTEC outreach summit and recently concluded successful visit of President Pranab Mukherjee to Nepal have helped recuperating and stabilizing India-Nepal relations.
