Lawmakers at today's Legislature-Parliament meeting have demanded that a public holiday be declared on the day of the Hindu festival Gaijatra from next year, applicable across the country.
    
Expressing their views during zero hour, they also drew the attention of the government to save areas like Bajhang and Chainpur from being eroded by the Seti River.

Likewise, they also drew the attention of the government to 12 VDCs of Banke district being at risk of being eroded and demanded that increasing road accidents be controlled, violence against women in Parbat be curbed and viral fever spreading across the country be contained at the earliest.
