I am together with you in this campaign,” Prime Minister Dahal told the comedian couple, according to a statement issued by the Prime Minister’s Secretariat.
On the occasion, Dahal, on behalf of the government, further expressed his commitment to support the integrated model settlements that the Foundation has built in the two districts.
