Swaraj also called on President Bidya Bhandari.

She will also call on Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba and meet other political leaders today before leaving for Delhi.

Swaraj yesterday held one-on-one talks with CPN-UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli, who is likely to be the next prime minister and prominent leaders of Madhesi parties.
