Prez sees promulgation of federal constitution in the offing
Inaugurating the Salahesh festival at the Salahesh garden in Sisawani, Siraha on Friday, Dr. Yadav expressed the confidence that the new constitution along with federalism would be promulgated if the political parties agreed to join hands for peace and constitution.
“Peace, tranquility, tolerance and goodwill can help protect the nation and would also give the country a new constitution”, the president said while pointing out the need for political stability in order to institutionalise the changes that were made with minimum damage in the country.
The president also said that preservation and promotion of natural heritage, herbs, fruits and plants to develop as a botanical garden would help promote tourism and strengthen the economy.
“This will then stop Nepali youths from going to the gulf countries to look after camels or wash dishes”, he said.
He also suggested the senior political party leaders to follow the footstep of King Sahalesh, who won people’s heart by working as per their wishes and aspirations.
Minister for General Administration, Ram Kumar Yadav, Minister without portfolio Raj Lal Yadav, CA members from the district, industrialists and social workers, and civil servants were present on the occasion.
The Salahesh festival is organised every year on Baisakh 1 at the flower garden at Mahisotha, some four kilometers from Lahan town.
A grand fair is also organized during the festival drawing a large number of revelers from across Nepal and neighbouring Bihar state of India.
An orchid plant at the middle of the Salahesh garden there is believed to flower only for a day on Baisaikh 1 every year.
