The Mahasamiti meeting of the ruling Nepali Congress (NC) with altogether 2,105 participants kicked off in Godavari Municipality of Lalitpur on Monday.

The Mahasamiti was opened by President Sher Bahadur Deuba by lighting a traditional lamp at the Godavari Convention Center situated near the Godavari Botanical Garden.

Addressing the inaugural function former Prime Minister Deuba said, the Maha Samiti meeting will move forward the largest democratic party in a more consolidated, unified and strong way.

All the political parties should make common view regarding the country’s sovereignty, integrity, democracy, development, foreign policy and concluding the peace process,” said Deuba.
