Bhaktapur- Speaker of the House of Representatives Agni Prasad Sapkota has said that Parliament is the soul of democracy.
Inaugurating the ‘Federal Model Youth Parliament Practice Program’ organized today at the youth council in Sanothimi, Bhaktapur, he said that Parliament is the soul of democracy in the ultimate sense.
