India's Prime Minister Modi on two-day state visit to Nepal

Not everyone in Janakpur is celebrating Modi's visit, with many still angry about India's five-month blockade in 2015.


    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.
