Kathmandu, July 22

Nepal has congratulated new Indian President Draupadi Murmu, expressing its confidence in taking Nepal-India relations to new heights during her term.

President Bidya Devi Bhandari and Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba resorted to Twitter to congratulate the president-elect with similar messages.

India on Thursday officially elected the Bharatiya Janata Party candidate Draupadi Murmu as the 15th president of the country, the second woman and the first ethnic minority group member to get the top position.

Correction: This news has been corrected and updated to include congratulatory messages of both President Bhandari and PM Deuba and remove a reference to an apparently fake account with the name of Murmu.
