Diverse communities enriched national culture
Speaking in a programme regarding Maghi festival on Wednesday, NCP Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal has explained the importance of diverse communities. He said festivals observed by these communities have enriched national culture. Further, he said, unity in the diversity would make nationality stronger.
Although people from all communities observe Makar Sakranti from different perspectives, there is a specific tradition of selecting guardian by Tharu community and approving the action plan for a year on this occasion. Recalling that he had, in the past, made possible efforts to give separate identity to Tharu community due to their original culture, Chairman Dahal said Tharu community was included in Madhesi community before promulgation of the constitution.
Chair Dahal expressed the belief that the party would continue the struggle for people’s rights as constitution is the document of the agreements. All should move ahead to gain new achievements by utilising the achievements, according to him. He stated the sacrifice and support of Tharu community to achieve democratic republic in the country.
