Gandaki, shared identity and civilization
POKHARA: Majority of the members of Province-4 Assembly in a meeting held today have demanded the province to be named ‘Gandaki’ while highlighting it as a shared identity and civilization.
With the unanimous endorsement of a proposal tabled by Province Assembly member Mayanath Adhikari seeking discussion on the name of the province, the members taking part in the deliberations said the Gandaki will represent all ethnic groups, language communities and geographies of the province.
Earlier, main opposition party, Nepali Congress, and Rastriya Janamorcha had already recommended and proposed the province to be named ‘Gandaki’. The Communist Party of Nepal (CPN) on Wednesday had also made the same decision.
However, Naya Shakti Party member has noted that the assembly should consider the demand for identity while naming the province.
Next meeting of the Province Assembly will take place at 11.00 am on Friday. RSS
