Even as Modi kept bitter war notion with Pakistan, his friendship with other neighbour’s continued to flourish.Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Nepal counterpart K P Sharma Oli on Tuesday jointly inaugurated the Motihari-Amlekhganj petroleum product pipeline via a video link.The over 60 km-long pipeline is the first-ever cross-border petroleum product pipeline in the South Asia region. It replaces the tankers which carry petroleum products from India to Nepal as part of an arrangement which is in place since 1973.The Motihari-Amlekhgunj oil pipeline project was first proposed in 1996. However, the project finally edged closer to reality during Modi’s visit to Kathmandu in 2014.It was expected to commence operations in mid-April this year but was delayed due to permission to cut trees inside Parsa National Park. India has invested Rs 3.5 billion to install the pipeline. Modi and Oli had jointly laid the foundation stone for the project at the Hyderabad House in New Delhi during Oli’s visit to India last year.
