Kathmandu, January 6
A four-day India trip of Nepal’s prime minister Sher Bahadur Deuba has been cancelled.
Whereas the cabinet meeting held on Wednesday had approved the PM’s trip, it got cancelled on Thursday with the Gujarat state government postponing the event that Deuba was scheduled to attend.
According to Indian media, the Gujarati government postponed the Vibrant Gujarat Summit amid a recent surge in the Covid-19 cases.
An official in the prime minister’s personal secretariat says Deuba will make a formal decision to cancel the trip once he is informed of the decision about the event officially.
Deuba was scheduled to fly to Gujarat via New Delhi on Sunday, January 9.
