The Nepali Congress has this year postponed the tea party that it has been organizing every year on the day of the Kojagrat on the occasion of various festivals as Bada Dashain, Deepawali, Nepal Sambat and Chhath.
The NC stated that it will organize the tea party on November 2, Friday. The same was earlier scheduled for October 24.
Party central committee member Dr. Dila Sangarula said the decision to defer the tea party has been taken due to the death of party leader Chakra Prasad Bastola as tribute to him.
Another leader Pradip Poudel said the party has decided to postpone all the programmes of the party except the condolence programme as the party is observing sorrow over the demise of Bastola. Bastola passed away on October 13.
