King Gyanendra visits Hanumandhoka against Nepal Government’s ordersNovember 14th, 2007 - 2:32 am ICT by admin
The King’s arrival at Hanumandhoika was marked by sloganeering by this supporters and protest by Maoist cadres.
However, no untoward incident was reported during the royal couple’s visit.
No special security was provided to the royal couple during their visit, reported Nepalnews.
Earlier on Thursday, Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala in his capacity as head of the state was the guest of honour at the traditional army parade organised at Tundikhel to mark Fulpati, the seventh day of Dashain festival.
In the past, the King used to observe the army parade, which coincides with the Fulpati day.
It was for the first time in Nepal’s history that a Prime Minister observed the traditional Fulpati function of the army.
Later on, Fulpati, an assortment of sacred shrubs offered to Goddess Durga, was taken to the temple of Taleju at Hanumandhoka royal palace in a procession. (ANI)
