Kathmandu, May 29, 2017: Google, the most popular search engine on Monday has come up with a doodle to celebrate the Republic Day of Nepal.
The day is being celebrated across the country, organizing various programmes.
The first meeting of the Constituent Assembly had declared Nepal a Federal Democratic Republic on 28th of May, 2008 (15th of Jesth, 2065 BS). The Republic Day is marked in commemoration of this very day.
The announcement of the federal republic not only formally abolished the 240 years old monarchy (Shah Dynasty), but also paved a way for radical shift in governance- from the unitary to federal system.
