Stating that the sooner Nepal comes close to us, the better, the Prime Minister urged that the bridge on the Mahakali river and the Pancheshwar multi-purpose project should be taken up at the earliest. 

Noting that it is more expensive to make a telephone call between India and Nepal, than it is to make a call between India and USA, the Prime Minister said he is keen to change this fact. 

The India-Nepal border should not be a barrier but a bridge which helps bring prosperity to both sides, the Prime Minister said. 

He offered assistance to Nepal in the fields of organic farming, and soil health.
