Nepal's Minister for Information and Communications, Surendra Karki, has announced that, at today's Nepalese Government Cabinet meeting, the Nepalese Ministry of Home Affairs had been tasked with the review of the number of public holidays enjoyed by the government employees on various festivals and other special occasions.

The aforementioned announcement that, at today's Nepalese Government Cabinet meeting, the Nepalese Ministry of Home Affairs had been tasked with the review of the number of public holidays in Nepal, follows the recent fracas concerning the absence of Prithvi Jayanti, the birth anniversary of King Prithvi Narayan Shah, from the list of 2016-2017 public holidays in Nepal (02-Apr-2016).

The government of Nepal, a decade ago (10-Jan-2007), had canceled the National Unity Day celebrations, celebrated on the occasion of birth anniversary of King Prithvi Narayan Shah, the founder of Shah dynasty, who had unified the modern state of Nepal. Despite many requests to have the public holiday restored (29-Dec-2010), the Prithvi Jayanti public holiday of Nepal had remained absent from the list of annual public holidays in Nepal (02-Apr-2016, 03-Mar-2015, 02-Mar-2014, 24-Apr-2013 and 30-Jan-2012).
