Sushma calls on Nepal PM Pushpa Kamal Dahal

 External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj called on visiting Nepal Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal "Prachanda" here on Friday.



New Delhi: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj called on visiting Nepal Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal "Prachanda" here on Friday.

"EAM @SushmaSwaraj calls on PM Pushpa Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda' at Rashtrapati Bhavan," External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup tweeted along with a picture of the two leaders.

Prachanda is scheduled to hold bilateral talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi later in the day following which some agreements are expected to be signed between the two sides.

Prachanda arrived here on Thursday on a four-day visit to India.

The new Maoist-led government in Nepal assumed power early last month after the ouster of KP Sharma Oli as Prime Minister.

Apart from Sushma Swaraj, Prachanda is scheduled to meet Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and Minister of State for Power Piyush Goyal later in the day before calling on President Pranab Mukherjee.

He will also attend a joint business event organised by Assocham in the evening.

Earlier on Friday, he was accorded a ceremonial welcome at the Rashtrapati Bhavan here.
