Likewise Gandaki Province Chief Minister Krishna Chandra Nepali Pokhrel said the unitary system that was in existence in the country for long had defined the nationality narrowly and the following the 2006 people’s movement, the unity among all castes, communities and the cultures has been accepted on the major features of the nationality.

As he hoped, the festival would inspire all to get further united. Gandaki Province speaker Netra Nath Adhikari was of the view of preserving the ethnic, caste, linguistic and cultural diversities. Tamu Dhi Nepal chair Huma Bahadur Tamu said the Lhosar marks the commencement of a new year of the Tamu community and this time they bid farewell to the year of Cow and welcomed the year of the Tiger.
