Speaking at the event treasurer of the organization, Bhawana Karki urged the government to consider art sector as a fifth organ of the state.
“Artists are not just things of decoration they are the identity of a country. Therefore the government should give due recognition to artists by treating art sector as the fifth organ of the country,” said Karki.
She also demanded that the organization’s anniversary be marked as the national dance day.
Earlier, the organization had felicitated Bhairab Bahadur Thapa as Nepal’s first dance teacher.
