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.
