The Federation of Nepali Journalists (FNJ) Women Department is organising the conference from tomorrow at Patihani, the touristic site in the district. As told by FNJ, Chitwan Radheshyam Khatiwada, a total of 200 women journalists across the country will be arriving here to participate in the two-day gathering.
The first-day schedule of the programme includes the interactions with the community/ locals of Patihani and a tour of Patihani which has been in the list of 100 touristic sites indentified by the government recently.
