Speaking at the function organised by the Ganesh Man Singh (GMS) Foundation, former deputy Prime Minister and senior leader of main opposition Nepali Congress Prakash Man Singh highlighted the role played by his late father in overthrowing authoritarian Rana regime in 1950 and reinstatement of multiparty democracy in 1990.
There is a need for fulfilling the dream of late Singh by building an inclusive democratic society and attaining economic prosperity for the country through economic revolution if we are to pay true tribute to him, Prakash said.
He also slammed the present Communist government for failing to deliver on their promises despite enjoying two thirds majority in Parliament.
Nepali Congress had played a key role in promulgating the new Constitution three years ago under the premiership of party president late Sushil Koirla and now the party is ready to play any role in institutionalising the achievements of the democratic movement of 2006, when federal democratic republic system was established by abolishing monarchy, he said.
Singh was the leader of the democratic movement of 1990 in Nepal. He is revered as the Father of Democracy and the Iron-man of Nepali Politics. He joined Praja Parishad to protest against the autocratic rule of the Ranas.
