BIRATNAGAR: An all-party meeting is being held today to discuss the name of Province 1.
Chief Minister Rajendra Rai has called an all-party meeting to reach an agreement on the name of the province.
As the province has not got its name even after reaching an agreement on the permanent headquarters of the province, the provincial government is striving to make a consensus on the province name.
According to sources, all the parliamentary party leaders of the political parties in the provincial parliament, their province committee chairmen and the ministers will attend the meeting.
Earlier, the province 1 cabinet held on January 30 had entrusted a committee led by Minister Jaya Ram Yadav to facilitate the process of naming the province.
The meeting of the same committee has called for discussion to move ahead with the process of finalizing the name of the state.
Though Chief Minister Rajendra Rai has been taking initiative to name the state, no agreement has been reached on the name yet.
