On Wednesday, India and Nepal jointly opened five schools that were rebuilt with Indian financial support as part of a scheme to reconstruct Nepal's educational institutions and health centres after the April 2015 earthquake. The gesture is the first public expression of bilateral collaboration since Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba entered office in July following the dismissal of Prime Minister K.P. Sharma Oli by the Supreme Court of Nepal. Anurag Srivastava, Joint Secretary in-charge of Nepalese affairs in the Ministry of External Affairs, and MPs from the area Gokul Prasad Baskota and Ganga Bahadur Tamang officially opened the schools in Kavrepalanchowk. Over the last three months, official communications have been limited, but on September 26, External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar met with his Nepalese colleague Narayan Khadka on the fringes of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
