The reception will be held at local Bhrikutimandap, the party said. A poetry symposium and a colloquium are also the programmes scheduled on the day of Prithvi Jayanati beside the reception.
The Prime Minister, ministers, political leaders, chiefs of constitutional bodies, heads and representatives of diplomatic missions, incumbent and retired senior government officials have been invited to the reception, according Rajaram Shrestha, a spokesperson for the party. Some 15,000 guests have been invited to the ceremony, he added.
The party plans to mobilise some 2000 party cadres to make the event successful. On the occasion, three people researching on the theme of Prithvi Narayan Shah will be honoured, as the party states.
The RPP Nepal was hosting a reception on the occasion of the Prithivi Jayanti and National Unification Day since the past one decade and this is the first reception after the RPP and RPP Nepal merged and became the RPP.
It is noted that the country used to celebrate the birth anniversary of Prithvi Narayan Shah, the first king of the Unified Nepal, on Push 27 every year until it became a republic in 2007. RSS
