We must elect change and development oriented leaders in the local poll: Rishi Dhamala


KATHMANDU, May 7: Nepali Congress leader Min Bahadur Bishwokarma has urged for working in interest of democracy and institutionalizing the achievements of people’s struggle.

Addressing the 1st anniversary of Mighty Garuda Charitable Trust on Saturday, Leader Bishwokarma, said, “We have succeeded in establishing democracy, republic, federalism, proportional representation and secularism. Next is our responsibility to institutionalize them.”


Also speaking during the program, Reporters’ Club Nepal’s President and senior journalist Rishi Dhamala lauded the outstanding role of Nepali Congress in establishing democracy and federal republic. He, however, expressed his dissatisfaction that NC had failed to move ahead in the path of ”unity and reconciliation’ showed by late BP Koirala.

Journalist Dhamala was of the view that people should cast their votes to change oriented leaders who will work towards better future rather than talk. He said, “21st century is the era of prosperity and development. All leaders carry agendas of development. But we must only elect change and development oriented in the upcoming local polls.”

He further said that although Nepalese people were successful in bringing several political changes in the country, we have never become able to keep our achievements. He added, “But now time has come that all political parties must reconcile head the country into the path of constitution implementation and constitution implementation as there is no alternative to it.”


Social worker and the Chairperson of the Trust Raju Sunar, on the occasion, handed over instructional materials to as many as 500 students of Chamunda Higher Secondary School, Aruna Higher Secondary School, Siyem Memorial Academy and other schools.

According to Sunar, the educational materials were supported by Noha Philanthropy Trust, which is currently active in Australia and Singapore.

Sunar, who is also the Chair of Noha Philanthropyu Trust, further said that Garuda in coordination with Noha, will distribute educational materials in all districts of the country.
