KATHMANDU, Feb 19: The 72th National Democracy Day is being observed across the country by organizing various programs today. The government has organized a special ceremony at the Nepal Army Pavillion Tudikhel in the heart of the capital. The ceremony will be attended by the President, Prime Ministers and heads of constitutional bodies, among others.

Nepal ushered into the democratic regime with the formation of a government comprising representatives of the Nepali Congress and the Ranas following the proclamation of then King Tribhuvan in favor of democracy. The people had waged struggle and sacrificed their lives against the 104-year-old Rana oligarchy which was later compelled to declare democracy in the country bowing down to the historic people's movement.

The armed struggle had established democracy in the country on 7 Falgun 2007 BS.  In commemoration of the historical day, the government has been observing Democracy Day (Falgun 7) by organizing a special program at Tudikhel every year.
