    Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is on a two-day visit to Nepal.

    It's his first trip since 2015, when his government imposed an unofficial blockade along the India-Nepal border.

    It caused a shortage of essential goods and opened a path for China to step in.

    Al Jazeera’s Subina Shrestha reports from Janakpur.
