Associated Press . New Delhi

India on Saturday pledged $250 million for post-earthquake reconstruction in Nepal as the two countries try to heal strained ties following protests in Nepal over the country’s new constitution.
The assistance, covering housing, health, education and cultural heritage in Nepal’s earthquake-hit areas, is part of an accord signed by the countries’ foreign ministers during Nepalese prime minister Khadga Prasad Oli’s visit to India.
