PM Narendra Modi and his Nepalese counterpart KP Sharma Oli remotely inaugurated a power transmission line connecting Nepal’s Dhalkebar and Muzaffarpur in Bihar today. The power line will allow Nepal to import up to 80 megawatts of electricity from India at ₹3.45 per unit .The relationship between the two countries had soured in the wake of agitation by the India-origin Madhesi community, which shares close family and cultural ties with Indians, opposing Nepal’s Constitution.
