Paudel stresses unity among all to safeguard democracy


Senior Nepali Congress leader Ramchandra Paudel today stressed the need for all to unite to safeguard democracy.

Only unity and diligence would safeguard democracy and the constitution, he said at a programme organised on the occasion of the seventh day of the demise of former NC regional President and freedom fighter Bhakti Prasad Timilsina by NC Chitwan constituency 2.

Stating that the demise of Timilsina had caused an irreparable loss to the party, he said the Nepali Congress had been able to lead various people’s movements so far due to the contribution of party cadres like him.

“Politics is a path of sacrifice. This should be learnt from Bhakti Timilsina,” added Poudel.

Saying that there was need for all to be involved in politics with the aim of contributing to society instead of taking benefits from it, Nepali Congress central member Chandra Bhandari said that only persons who could sacrifice themselves for the party would be genuine politicians.

Other speakers, NC central member Dhanraj Gurung, president of NC constituency 2 Bharat Lamichhane, president of NC, Chitwan, Jit Narayan Shrestha, former NC leaders Krishna Lal Sapkota, Ram Krishna Ghimire and Shesh Nath Adhikari, Bishnu Prasad Dhital and Bijaya Bhusal, among others, praised Timilsina for his contribution to the Nepali Congress.

Timilsina died due to COVID-19 at Chitwan Medical College at the age of 77.
