Nepal's Prime Minister, Madhav Kumar, has announced that this year's Udahuli Sakela festival (aka. Mangshir Purnima) would be a nationwide public holiday this year.

Normally, this festival, would have been a regional public holiday only.

Today's promotion of a regional, or sectorial public holiday into a full-fledged nationwide public holiday, seems to be part of a recent trend (2009-11-28 and 2009-10-10).
