Kathmandu, April 17
Once again, Vijay Chauthaiwale, the chief of the Foreign Affairs Department of the Indian ruling Bharatiya Janata Party, is in Nepal. The visit is reportedly aimed at setting the scene for Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal’s visit to New Delhi next month.
Chauthaiwale entered Nepal via the land route on Sunday evening. He is scheduled to address an event in Dhangadhi of Sudurpaschim today before leaving for Kathmandu.
Upon his arrival in Kathmandu, he will meet Prime Minister Dahal and newly appointed Foreign Affairs Minister Narayan Prakash Saud.
Of late, Chauthaiwale has been in constant touch with Nepali politicians as a representative of India’s ruling party.
