Nepalese President Ram Baran Yadav arrived in India on Monday afternoon for a six-day visit, during which India is expected to press its concern on the continuing political instability in the Himalayan nation.

Yadav arrived in Varanasi on Monday, where he will receive the D.Litt at the Banaras Hindu University convocation ceremony on Tuesday.

He will hold formal talks with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and President Pranab Mukherjee on Wednesday.

The visit comes as India is looking on with concern at the continued stalemate in the Nepali polity after the dissolution of the constituent Assembly.

External Affairs Minister Khurshid said that New Delhi had been closely watching Yadav’s efforts to bring the political parties together to forge national consensus.

“We are well-informed about the political developments in Nepal and the President’s endeavours to forge consensus through our mission,” he added.
