Social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter are also flooded with pleas calling on the government to declare January 11 as a public holiday. RPP is organising a tea party in Bhrikutimandap tomorrow to mark Shah’s birth anniversary. Chief Whip of the party Dilnath Giri told The Himalayan Times that he had personally requested top leaders of all political parties to pile pressure on the government to declare a public holiday on this day. Giri said top leaders, including Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba and CPN-UML Chair KP Sharma Oli, had responded positively to his request. “They all said they had no objection if the government declared January 11 a public holiday,” Giri said, adding that former prime minister Jhalanath Khanal even asked PM Pushpa Kamal Dahal to take a decision to this effect before long. According to him, PM Dahal had told him that he would take a decision in this regard after consulting other political parties.
