Prithvi Narayan Shah is respected for unifying the country: Defence Minister

Kathmandu, Jan 11
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Defence, Ishwaor Pokhrel, has said that showing respect to Prithvi Narayan Shah for his contribution to building a unified Nepal does not equate to talking of an autocratic monarchy. Addressing a procession rally organized by Nepal Academy and other organizations on the occasion of the 297th Prithvi Jayanti and the National Unity Day today, the DPM said the late king Shah is remembered as the unifier of modern Nepal. He added that the government honoured the birthday of the late king as he is the initiator of the national unification campaign. “He (King Prithvi Narayan Shah) unified the religion, culture and language. So, the National Unification Day is celebrated in his commemoration,” DPM Pokhrel said. Had Prithvi Narayan Shah not unified the nation, Nepal would not have the dignity, independence and sovereignty it is enjoying today, he observed. He said the National Unification Day has been commemorated to pay respect to the late king and not based on any ideology. The Deputy Prime Minister said various elements were trying to disintegrate the society unified by Prithvi Narayan Shah and such elements should be defeated. Minister for Communications and Information Technology, Gokul Prasad Banskota, Chancellor of Nepal Academy Ganga Prasad Uprety, among the dignitaries participated in the procession. The procession started from Kamaladi and concluded upon reaching Singha Durbar after passing through Ratna Park and Bhadrakali. (RSS)
