PM Deuba expands Cabinet, inducts 15 State Ministers

Modi calls up Nepal PM, offers help to deal with flood situation

Prime Minister Modi on Friday made a telephonic call to his Nepali counterpart and assured all possible assistance from India to deal with the situation created by floods.

PM Deuba administered the oath of office and secrecy to the newly appointed State Ministers at the Office of Prime Minister and Council of Ministers today.

Deuba, who took over from Prachanda as the prime minister of Nepal in a power-sharing deal in June, will be on a five- day visit to India from tomorrow on his first official trip overseas.

"The prime minister conveyed condolences at the loss of lives in Nepal due to recent widespread floods and expressed readiness to provide all possible relief assistance", the PMO said in a statement.

42 civilians dead in US-led strikes in Syria's Raqa
The activist-run group Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently said 32 people were killed in airstrikes on one neighbourhood alone. USA -led coalition airstrikes killed at least 42 people in Iraq on Tuesday - mostly women and children, a watchdog said.

On Thursday, Deuba and Modi will hold delegation-level talks at Hyderabad House in Delhi, followed by the signing of some agreements.

Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba has inducted 15 more State Ministers in his Cabinet on Tuesday. Some Indian Ministers and political leaders will call on Deuba. The expansion came two days after Deuba inducted eight state ministers from former prime minister Prachanda's CPN (Maoist-Centre) party, a coalition partner in the government. In 1996, Deuba, who has become the prime minister of the Himalayan country for the fourth time, chaired a 48-member Cabinet.

Nepal's government said on Monday that it will conduct general elections on November 26, as officials seek to consolidate democratic gains in the politically unstable country.
