Narendra Modi trying to 'influence' Karnataka voters with Nepal temple visits: Congress

PM Narendra Modi Offers Prayer At Iconic Muktinath Temple			 0					By		Aruna Sharma

Oli made the remarks in Parliament while informing members about Modi's visit. He also offered prayers at the Pashupatinath temple, located on the banks of the Bagmati river.

PM Narendra Modi on Saturday prayed at Nepal's iconic Muktinath temple regarded sacred by both Hindus and Buddhists. Situated at 3710 metres above the sea level in Mustang district, Muktinath temple is regarded sacred by Hindus and Buddhists. This is not a good trend for democracy.

He will also offer prayers at Pashupatinath temple after his return from Muktinath.

Although Gehlot flagged the issue, Congress leaders were not willing to discuss it publicly to avoid any major controversy on poll day. In Gujarat also, he held a road show after voting. "When Karnataka is polling, he has gone to Nepal and is worshipping in temples there, as he could not do so in the southern state due to elections", Mr Gehlot said.

US Could Sanction European Countries Over Iran, Bolton says
European Union officials have indicated they may threaten similar measures to those that pressured then president Bill Clinton to give waivers to European companies under U.S. sanctions on countries such as Cuba during the 1990s.

So far, the Prime Minister has visited three temples, including Janakpur's Janki Temple, during his two-day visit. "If one asks him (Modi), no other person is Hindu, except the BJP and RSS people, besides him and Amit Shah", he said.

Modi arrived in Kathmandu on May 11. "Since we have entered a new era, we all must move on the course of stability, development and prosperity by assuming global policies and responsibilities", Prime Minister Oli said quoted Modi as telling him. Oli said India has agreed to mobilise technicians to study the proposal and take a concrete decision by September. PTI SBP Oli said the visit by his Indian counterpart had helped take Nepal-India relation to a new height.

The former Rajasthan chief minister, however, remained unconvinced with the MEA's explanation on the dates and reiterated that the PM had timed his Nepal visit to coincide with the Karnataka polls.
