The 295th Prithvi Jayanti is being observed across the country. The day is being observed at the people’s level amid demands for declaration of the Jayanti as National Unity Day and a public holiday.Prithvi Narayan Shah, the king of a princely state called Gorkha, had unified princely states and created modern Nepal. He sat on the throne of Gorkha at the age of 20. Through wars that lasted about three decades, he amalgamated ever-fighting states and made them a part of Nepal when the British Empire was making inroads into India.Before the abolition of the monarchy and the declaration of Nepal as a republic, the state used to observe Prithvi Jayanti as the National Unity Day. It used to be a public holiday. Today while celebrating Prithivi Jayanti there was a conflict between two peoples. You can see the fight in this video.
