Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be on a two-day state visit to Nepal starting on Friday.

But others argue that Modi either doesn't know about the level of anger in Nepal, or doesn't care.

The Prime Minister will be visiting Nepal on 11-12 May 2018 at the invitation of the Prime Minister of Nepal KP Sharma Oli.

He will offer special prayers at the city's Ram Janaki Mandir, making him the first Indian Prime Minister to do so with "khodasopachar" rituals. Before Minister Gyawali's address to the Parliament, lawmakers made queries and offered suggestions to the government vis-a-vis Modi's Nepal visit.

The Ramayan Circuit is among the 13 tourist circuits under the "Swadesh Darshan Scheme" of India.

The entire temple premise is decorated with fresh flowers and posters welcoming PM Modi are hung outside the temple. Leaders of the parties representing the district have been invited to attend the programme.

The provincial government has announced a public holiday to coincide with Modi's visit. India's assessment is that the internal power dynamics in Nepal is stable and the two Left parties CPN (Maoist Centre) and CPN-UML in the ruling alliance will merge.Both sides will deliberate on implementation of the ambitious rail project to link Kathmandu with Raxaul in Bihar and connecting landlocked Nepal through river transport system with India. Modi and his Nepalese counterpart K P Sharma Oli will jointly lay the foundation stone for the 900-MW Arun 111 hydro power project, being constructed with Indian assistance of an estimated ₹6,000 crore in Eastern Nepal. The countries have yet to agree on how to exchange the banned bills of Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 held by individuals and informal sectors in Nepal, an amount estimated to be Rs 9.5 billion.

Hundreds of Nepalese have taken to social media calling on Modi to apologize for the five-month blockade, which was imposed in September 2015. Not since Jawaharlal Nehru inaugurated the Kosi Barrage in 1961 has an Indian leader visited Nepal's Tarai.

The Annapurna trekking route in Manang will be closed for three days to trekkers and tourists due to security reasons. In what will also symbolise the shared Indo-Nepalese cultural heritage, PM Modi is also expected to visit temples at both Janakpur and Muktinath in Nepal during his visit.

According to officials, certain agreements were expected to be signed between the two leaders.
