Nepal President Emphasizes Grassroots Empowerment and Democratic Ideals

In a poignant commemoration event held jointly by the Martyr Keshav Koirala Memorial Foundation and Matihani municipality, Nepal President Ramchandra Paudel reiterated the nation’s commitment to uplifting marginalized communities and safeguarding the democratic aspirations of its citizens.

President Paudel highlighted the imperative need to prioritize activities aimed at empowering grassroots populations, including Dalits, oppressed groups, indigenous communities, and women. Emphasizing that it is the government’s responsibility to ensure their upliftment, he underscored the significance of protecting the dreams of martyrs who envisioned a state founded on democratic principles and equality.

Reflecting on the historical significance of Matihani as a bastion of revolution for civil rights, President Paudel acknowledged the strides made in achieving political milestones such as the establishment of a federal democratic republic. However, he emphasized that the true essence of these achievements is yet to be fully realized.

The President lauded the Constitution of Nepal for granting all citizens ownership of state power and for its provisions aimed at ending discrimination and inequality. He urged political leaders to expedite the formulation of laws that empower the provinces, thereby decentralizing authority and fostering inclusive governance.

Amidst the solemnity of the occasion, President Paudel paid tribute to the legacy of martyrs like Keshav Koirala and democratic warriors like Ganesh Nepali, emphasizing their pivotal role in shaping Nepal’s democratic ethos. He called upon all citizens to forge ahead on the path of prosperity through principles of good governance, development, and employment.

In conclusion, President Paudel reiterated that the true tribute to the sacrifices of these heroes lies in embedding democracy as a way of life and culture, ensuring that their vision endures as a beacon of hope for generations to come.
