People pray for Koirala's good health

Written by: Staff

Kathmandu, Apr 29 (UNI) People in western Nepal today prayed and performed Shati Homa for the speedy recovery and good health of Prime Minister designate Girija Prasad Koirala.

A large number of people gathered at Laxminarayan temple, Dhangadi, Kailali in western Nepal this morning and lit traditional lamps and worshipped for about three hours, praying for the good health of Mr Koirala, local reporters told UNI from Dhangadhi.

The priests of the temple read out the sermons from the Veda, wishing for peace and stability in the country.

The worshipers also wished for the eternal peace of the ''martyrs,'' who were shot dead during the people's movement against the autocratic rule of the king.

This is the first time that such Puja is conducted in the mountainous nation wishing for the speedy recovery of a political party leader.

The swearing in ceremony of Mr Koirala has been deferred since yesterday due to his ill health.
