Nepal to retain its National Flag


The three major parties –UCPN-Maoist, Nepali Congress (NC) and CPN UML – on Sunday agreed to retain the existing features of the national flag in the new constitution. This follows a previous agreement by the three major parties to retain Nepali as the official language of Nepal. It's interesting to see how the three major parties seem to agree on issues that are non-issues - national flag, official language. What will be the next issue to be resolved? Retain Kathmandu as the capital city of Nepal? Or perhaps, retain the name of Sagarmatha? Our politicians - what a bunch of jokers!
