Kathmandu, 18 December, 2014:Â At a time when the country has remained a hostage to protracted political transition, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Local Development Prakashman Singh on Thursday underscored the necessity of a democratic constitution for political stability in the country.
Speaking at the 102nd birth anniversary of Dr Dilli Raman Regmi held by Dilli Raman-Kalyani Regmi Memorial Library
Development Committee in the capital city, Singh stressed for completing the constitution making process in the stipulated time to end the current political instability and ensure nation’s bright future.
“Dr Dilli Raman Regmi was not only a historian, but a political figure as well,” Singh said adding, “We can learn a lot from his life.”
Stating that the national interest must be kept above rest of the priorities, the Deputy PM said a true honour towards Dr Regmi would be the timely promulgation of the new constitution by rising above personal and party interests.
On the occasion, DPM Singh made public, ‘Whither Nepal’ written by Dr Regmi and published again by the library.
Likewise, former Education Minister and UCPN (Maoist) leader Dinanath Sharma said a lot of things could be learned from the life of Regmi, who invested the money of his earnings in the name of the country.
Sharma called on all to follow the path adopted by Regmi.
Likewise, Education Secretary Bishwo Prakash Pandit said the contribution made by Regmi, an accomplished historian of Nepal, was unforgettable.
Secretary Pandit said the government had used the property Regmi handed over to the government in his honour. He added that the government had been making investment for the library every year.
Library Development Committee’s former Chairman Prem Chotta said Regmi had contributed in spreading Nepal’s identity not only in Nepal, but in foreign countries.
At the programme, Prof Dr Krishna Bahadur Thapa, Dr Gyanendra Poudyal and Library Development Committee Member-Secretary Bhola Kumar Shrestha, Baburam Dahal among others spoke of Regmi’s contribution to the prosperity of the country.
