Pokhara, May 24: A goodwill rally has been organized here this morning calling for social harmony in the country.
Alarmed by the possibility of the social goodwill subsisting between the people of different castes for centuries being disturbed due to the protest movements, shutdowns and general strikes being held by different organizations in recent days, the rally was organised at the initiation of the Pokhara Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
A large number of people including members of the civil society, business community, tourism entrepreneurs, representatives of government and non-government organizations, teachers and students participated in the rally.
The participants of the rally chanted various slogans calling for an end to the culture of organizing crippling shutdowns and the politics based on violence and coercion, and maintaining social goodwill.
The rally started from local Sabhagriha Chowk and went round the town.
