Declaring the start of the march titled ‘Lokmargama Janasambad Yatra’ that will be carried out along the Mid-hill Highway in Chiwa Bhanjyang in Chyangthapu, Panchthar, today, the former prime minister said that achieving prosperity in the country was the sole motive behind conceptualising the march along the highway traversing hilly districts.
