What is Republic Day? well, we take republic day as that day when a country’s ruler is overthrown by the people/citizen of the nation. In context of Nepal republic day, it is celebrated in May 28 every year. May 28th is the day when the Shah dynasty of Nepal took down form the throne after mass protest of dictatorship by the king ruling Nepal.

May 28 is embossed in our history as Nepal Republic day, as it was one of the major step we took towards our freedom and created a nation ruled by its people by overthrowing the dictatorship monarchy. Even though our constitution writing and finalizing process really took long than we expected.

May 28 is the date when citizen got the sovereignty power within them to create a democratic government, created own Constitution and rule own nation.

Even though Nepal is Republic and constitution of 2072 is adopted, there are still many problems and issues that we are facing. Problems that our constitution is still in short to address them, we can say that this process of constitution building is still going on and will change according to or need and demands. As constitution is voice of people how they want to live in this country we can change every part and aspect of it.

    Republic day marks the day Nepal was declared a Federal republic state, not the day that the kings abdicated the throne. That day is marked by “LOKTANTRA DIWAS” on 11th Baishak.
