In an exclusive interview to Focus News, former Prime Minister of Nepal Pushp Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda' has termed Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit as 'historic'.
Prachanda met PM Modi on Friday, during which the bilateral relations and issues related to that country came up for discussion.
Prachanda, the leader of CPN-Maoist who had led a decade- long armed movement in Nepal before joining mainstream politics about eight years ago, is here on a seven-day visit since July 14.
An India-baiter for years, he had last met Modi in Kathmandu during the Prime Minister's visit there in August last year.

In his interview with Political Editor Shanker Arnimesh, Prachanda accepted that he "failed in competitive politics in 2008." "My biggest mistake was not making Sushil Koirala as President and removing Army chief."
He also clarified that he has no soft corner for China and maintains a very healthy relationship with India.
"Modi's visit was historic and there is no comparison of him with ex-PM Manmohan Singh."
