Martyrs’ Contribution Should Not Be Forgotten: Senior Leader Poudel

Nepali Congress (NC) senior leader Ramchandra Poudel stressed that they should not forget the contributions of martyrs.

Unveiling the bust-size statue of martyr Bikram Pariyar at Byas Municipality-1, Bhadhgaun in Tanahu district today, leader Poudel said that all those who made significant contributions to the democratic movement in the country should be honoured.

Stressing on the need to immortalize the contributions of Pariyar, Poudel said that NC would always honour the martyrs and their contribution.

The statue of Pariyar was made by Bir Uparkoti of Byas Municipality-12. Pariyar, a singer by profession, was murdered by a mob of youths following the local level election on May 14, 2017.

Leader Poudel, on a different note, blamed that although all communist leaders in Nepal were in favour of the US-aid grant Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), they were against the MCC at the behest of China.

According to him, the MCC was in the best interest of Nepal and America intended to help Nepal prosper by producing electricity and selling electricity.

Similarly, NC central member Shankar Bhandari bemoaned that NC did not properly honour the martyrs. He was of the view that NC could win in the election if it was further organized and unified.

Another central committee member Govinda Bhattarai viewed that NC should support the family of martyr Pariyar.

Likewise, Byas Municipality mayor Baikunthan Neupane shared that the municipality had allocated Rs 1 million to build a statue of Pariyar and construct a park in its surrounding.
