Kathmandu– A programme was held here this morning to pay tribute to the late Ganeshman Singh, who is revered as the supreme commander of 1990’s democratic movement in Nepal, on the occasion of his 21st memorial day.
The Ganeshman Singh Foundation organised the event, marking the death anniversary of the veteran democratic fighter known as an ‘iron man’ in Nepal’s politics. Nepali Congress leader Prakashman Singh laid a wreath on his idol at Shobhabhagawati.
Describing the late leader as an epitome of struggle, sacrifice, hard work and dedication who had enormous contributions to the democratic movements in the country, the NC lawmaker said the commander of 1990’s movement had his remarkable role to bring the then divided factions of Nepal’s communist parties together and to a multiparty-party system.
As he said, that NC has made ideologies of the late leader as the party’s driving force and the party has been doing its role as a responsible main opposition. He accused the government of failing to well address people’s issues.
NC central member Nabindra Raj Joshi, Surendra Pandey, Badri Pandey, NC Kathmandu party president Sabuj Baniya and chiefs and office bearers of NC sister wings were there to pay tributes to the late leader.
Singh born on November 9, 1915 in Kathmandu had passed away on September 18, 1997. RSS
