Nepal Communist Party Chairperson Pushpa Kamal Dahal says whether Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Nepal next month should not be regarded as a big news.

Dahal’s statement comes amid rumours that Modi’s scheduled visit to Janakpurdham on the occasion of Bibaha Panchami has turned uncertain due to different reasons.

Speaking with journalists at the Biratnagar Airport Monday, Dahal said, “I don’t know the details, but Modi has come to Nepal much frequently. Therefore, whether he comes to Nepal or not does not make any big news now.”

The second ranked leader of the ruling party, however, maintained that he was hopeful about the visit.

In another context, he said the Prime Minister was not going to change his ministers anytime soon.

Dahal was in Biratnagar to attend a tea reception organised by the party.
