NC to host tea party

KATHMANDU: The Nepali Congress is oganising a tea reception on the occasion of Vijaya Dashami 2066 on Saturday.

The NC has been conducting the tea party since 1976 when the then leader BP Koirala returned from exile in India with the principle of national reconciliation. After Koirala, party leaders Ganesh Man Singh and Krishna Prasad Bhattarai used to oganise the event. The present NC president Girija Prasad Koirala has been following in the footsteps of his predecessors and continuing the tradition from 1996.

NC office secretary Ram Chandra Poudel said that the tea reception is being organised in Bhrikutimandap, Kathmandu due to the party office building being under maintenance in Sanepa, Lalitpur.
