Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar will attend the golden jubilee celebrations of the All India Mithila Sangha, an organisation of natives of Bihar's Mithila region, the Sangha today said.
The day-long celebration is slated to take place at Talkatora Stadium here on December 24.
President Ram Nath Kovind has already assured to grace the celebrations with his presence. He will also be joined by Puri Shankaracharya Nischalanand Saraswati and other dignitaries from several walks of lives, the Sangha said in a statement.
The celebrations aim at showcasing the rich cultural, heritage and history of the Mithila region - the northern part of Bihar bordering Nepal.
Earlier today, a delegation of the Sangha led by its President and Rajya Sabha member Prabhat Jha met the Bihar chief minister in person to extend the invitation to the programme.
"Accepting the invitation, Kumar extended his warm wishes and for the successful organisation of the event," the statement said.
"Mithila has a unique place in the history of India and it is our duty to showcase and promote its diverse culture, history and heritage to the world," Jha said.
The Sangha is also instrumental in providing opportunities to local artists at national and international levels and is recognised for creating awareness about its distinct culture and tradition, it said.
