Republic Day being celebrated across the country today

KATHMANDU: The 17th Republic Day is being celebrated across the country on Tuesday.

The Republic Day Main Celebration Committee is holding a special function at Army Pavilion, Tundikhel. The Day is associated with people’s movement and aspiration for change.

All three tiers of government are conducting the programs to commemorate the historic day. It is the day the country was declared a Republic.

The government has decided to observe the day for three days- from May 27 to 29. The government offices in the country and diplomatic missions abroad would conduct programs along with illumination.

After the then CPN (Maoist) armed conflict and seven parties’ peaceful movement, then King Gyanendra Shah restored the House of Representatives (HoR) on April 24, 2006, thereby returning the rule to the people’s representatives.

Two years later, the first meeting of the Constituent Assembly on May 28, 2008, declared the country a Republic.

The Republic Day Main Celebration Committee has been formed under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal to celebrate the Republic Day, 2081 in a grand manner this year.
