CPN (Maoist Centre) chairman and former Prime Minister, Pushpa Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda', has said that he is not receiving the honour announced by the Trimurti Niketan.

In a press statement today, chairman Dahal's Private Secretariat said that it is a matter of individual freedom, choice and rights as well whether to accept any award, honour or prize.

The Trimurti Niketan, a literary organisation, yesterday announced the 'Trimurti Samman (Honour)' and the ' Satyamohan Joshi Centenary Medal' to former Prime Minister and CPN (MC) chair Dahal,  citing his role to promote the image of the organisation and contribution to  Nepali language and literature. 

Chairman Dahal said he respects the decision and is thankful to the organisation for its proposal to honour him, the Secretariat said.
