KATHMANDU – Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ asserted that there was a need for a peaceful revolution for ensuring good-governance, justice and prosperity.
At a programme organized here today to mark the 12th anniversary of GP Koirala Memorial College as well as the 100th birth anniversary of late Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala, PM Dahal argued that the anomalies, anarchy irregularities and the threat to democracy could not be mitigated through general reforms. Hence, he acknowledged the need for a peaceful revolution.
“At the time when democracy was facing threat, it is imperative to instill confidence of the people in the political parties having a long history. For this, I acknowledged the need of collaboration with the Nepali Congress and I am working towards strengthening the current coalition,” observed the Head of the Government.
He added: “The then insurgent Maoists came to peaceful struggle through the dialogues between the then Nepali Congress President Girija Prasad Koirala and I. The Federal Democratic Republic was established at the behest of the joint people’s movement. It is our common responsibility to protect the democracy and republican system,” said PM Dahal, also Chairperson of CPN (Maoist Centre).
Furthermore, he understood that it was necessary to bring about positive changes in the lives of people by devoting oneself for nation-building with self-analysis rather than spreading hate-speech through social media.
In this context, PM Dahal expressed his confidence that late Koirala’s high level of courage and strong willpower would inspire one and all for that. “Koirala would always remain the source of inspiration to me throughout my life. He was my guardian. My faith and trust towards him will ever remain intact.”
Stating that the education sector was decisive factor in nation-building, he informed that the incumbent government was preparing to introduce the University Act.
