Prez Stresses Unity On National Interest


KATHMANDU: All political parties should demonstrate national unity on the issues of national interest, President Bidya Devi Bhandari said on Wednesday.
President Bhandari also expressed her gratitude to the government and top leaders of different political parties for showing unprecedented national unity for territorial integrity and sovereignty.
