Leaders across party lines pay tribute to Ganesh Man Singh

Kathmandu, November 9:

Leaders of different political parties today said that the values and ideologies propagated by late Ganesh Man Singh would never die.

Addressing a programme organised to mark the 93rd birth anniversary of late Shrestha, CA member Nilambar Acharya said the late leader had taught a lesson of struggle and sacrifice to Nepali people. “Jana Andolan II was inspired from the struggle of the great leader. It was Singh who taught us the true meaning of democracy,” Acharya said, stressing the need to begin the constitution-drafting process at the earliest.

He also said that the Maoists leaders are in the process of capturing power and making constitution that favoured them.

Another CA member Pradeep Gyawali said the constitution of 1990 failed because it lacked dynamism. “The new constitution should be written as per the mandate of the people,” Gyawali said, adding that the remaining 18 month period was insufficient to draft the new constitution.

“Common people are feeling frustrated because of the political environment in the country,”

the UML leader said, urging the political parties to forge a consensus to take peace process to a logical end.
