PM Modi 'Influencing' Karnataka Elections By Visiting Nepal, Says Congress

Alleging violation of the model code of conduct, Gehlot said Modi's temple visits in Nepal were being aired on the day of polling in Karnataka.

Muktinath Temple is regarded as sacred place for both Hindus and Buddhists located in Muktinath Valley.

With this, the Election Commission has passed strict orders to all news channels airing in Karnataka to not to play the visuals of Modi's Nepal tour and his prayers at Pashupatinath temple.

Senior Congress leader Ashok Gehlot alleged that the prime minister had timed his visit to the Himalayan nation on the Karnataka poll date, and was "giving a message to Hindus" in the southern state.

The two countries have also agreed to expedite implementation of all pending projects of bilateral cooperation by Nepals Constitution Day in September, said Oli adding that multiple bilateral ministerial meetings will be held. Today, he has adopted a new path. "Why did he only choose today as the day?" the Congress leader said.

Knox took the head coaching position in Seattle in 1983. "We hold his family in our thoughts and prayers during this hard time". The Seahawks announced Knox's death Sunday morning, describing him as a "beloved figurehead by players, coaches and staff".

"If one asks him (Modi), no other person is Hindu, except the BJP and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) people, besides him and Amit Shah", he said.

Modi yesterday wrapped up his two-day visit to Nepal during which he held talks with Oli and visited the famed 20th century Janaki temple, Mukhtinath and Pashupatinath temples.

Prime Minister Modi will also attend a civic reception to be hosted in his honour by the Kathmandu Metropolitan City. Prime Minister Oli had then expressed his desire for an early visit by Prime Minister Modi.

Calling it a bad trend for democracy, Gehlot said, "Modi planned to visit Nepal today because there is model code of conduct in Karnataka".
