KATHMANDU, April 3: Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli is scheduled to brief both upper and lower houses of the federal parliament today on the agenda of his state visit to India slated for April 6-8.
According to sources at the Prime Minister's Office (PMO), Oli will inform parliament about the agendas of his visit and the scheduled bilateral meetings with his Indian counterpart and top officials.
Spokesperson for the parliament secretariat, Bharat Gautam said that Oli has sought time for addressing the lower and upper houses separately on 1 PM and 4 PM today.
Just as Foreign Minister Pradeep Gyawali said earlier, Prime Minister's visit will mainly focus on building mutual trust with India which had soured following the Indian economic embargo during his first stint as Prime Minister two years ago.
The minister has already made it clear that no new agreements will be inked during his visit which will give priority to expediting implementation of the projects signed between the two neighbors in the past.
Oli, who is embarking on India visit at the invitation of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, is scheduled to hold a meeting with the Indian president, vice president, prime minister and other senior ministers.
The current session of parliament is likely to be prorogued on Tuesday following the address of Prime Minister Oli.
