A day after Nepal’s new Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba passed the trust vote in parliament, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday dialed Deuba to congratulate him. Both leaders sought to enhance bilateral cooperation. 

“Spoke with Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba to convey my congratulation and best wishes. We will work together to further enhance wide-ranging cooperation between India and Nepal, including in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.” 

In the trust vote held on Sunday evening, Deuba secured 165 votes of the 275-member House. The other 83 voted against him. Total 249 lawmakers had cast their votes as one remained neutral.

“We shared views on further strengthening bilateral ties. PM Modi assured early supply of Covid Vaccines to Nepal. I thanked him for his warm words of congratulations,” Deuba said after the phone call with Modi.

Within hours of Deuba’s trust vote, Modi tweeted, congratulating him for a successful tenure and hoped to enhance cooperation, people-to-people connections between the two countries. Other leaders, including Pakistan Prime Minister, also congratulated Deuba.
