KATHMANDU: A programme was held here this morning to pay tribute to the late Ganesh Man 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, also known as ‘iron man’ in Nepal’s politics. Nepali Congress leader Prakash Man Singh laid a wreath on his idol at Shobhabhagawati.
Describing the late leader as an epitome of struggle, sacrifice, hard work and dedication who made enormous contributions to the democratic movements in the country, the NC lawmaker said, the commander of the 1990’s movement had a remarkable role in bringing the then divided factions of Nepal’s communist parties together and bringing the multiparty-party system.
On the occasion, he further said, NC considered ideologies of the late leader as the party’s driving force and that the party had been performing its role as a responsible main opposition. He accused the present government of failing to properly address people’s issues.
NC central members Nabindra Raj Joshi, Surendra Pandey, Badri Pandey, NC Kathmandu President Sabuj Baniya, and chiefs and office bearers of NC sister wings were there to pay tributes to the late leader.
Singh, who was born on November 9, 1915 in Kathmandu, had passed away on September 18, 1997.
