BHAKTAPUR, Aug 3: Minister for Forest and Environment, Shakti Basnet said Bhaktapur district was emerging as a model city to realize the government's campaign of 'Prosperous Nepal-Happy Nepali.'
At a program organized as part of the greenery campaign in the district on the occasion of the 75th Hanumante clean up drive today, the lone efforts of the government were not enough to bring development.

"All sides' efforts were needed to realize people's dream and expectation and political parties' comments," he argued, adding that new epoch had begun with the sweeping political change.
The change excited people for more expectation, but the time is fleeing. Cooperation is therefore essential, he observed.
