Since Lingayat community, who worship Lord Shiva, play dominant role in Karnataka and very crucial to decide the verdict of Karnataka Assembly polls, Modi's visit to Nepal and his prayers in Pashupatinath Temple on the day Karnataka votes is gaining significance. In Gujarat, he held a road show after voting. 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. Today, he has adopted a new path.

Mr Modi on Saturday prayed at Nepal's iconic Muktinath temple that is regarded sacred by both Hindus and Buddhists, becoming the first world leader to offer prayers there. Earlier, in the morning, Mr. Modi offered prayers at the Muktinath temple in Mustang district near the Nepal-China border. "Why did he only choose today as the day?"

"According to Mr Modi, no one other than the people of BJP, the RSS, Amit Shah and him qualify as Hindus", he said.

"Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi ji and I have agreed, during Modi Jis successful state visit to Nepal, to address the outstanding tasks between the two countries in a time-bound manner", Oli tweeted as he thanked Modi for his visit here.
