President Bidya Devi Bhandari has said all should learn from the ideals espoused by the supreme commander of the 1990 democracy movement, the late Ganesh Man Singh.
The President said this while addressing the People's Movement Gold Medal investiture ceremony organised by the Ganesh Man Singh and the People's Movement Martyrs Memorial Foundation on the occasion of the 102nd birth anniversary of the Supreme Leader today.
All should take a leaf out of the principles adhered to by the late leader Singh who made exemplary contribution to the establishment and consolidation of democracy by foregoing the government position, she said.
The Head of State also spoke of the need of consensus among the democratic forces for the effective implementation of the constitution.
Former Speaker Subash Chandra Nembang said it is necessary for the political parties that stood at one place in the fight against autocracy to once again come together for the implementation of the constitution.
Nepali Congress leader Krishna Prasad Sitaula said holding the three tiers of elections by implementing the constitution is the major challenge of the day.
Minister for Health Gagan Kumar Thapa underlined the need of taking the country towards the path of economic development now after securing the political rights as it was the fervent desire of the late leader Singh.
Meanwhile, the People's Movement Gold Medal has been presented to former general secretary of the Nepali Congress and former president of the Constitution Drafting Committee, Krishna Prasad Sitaula.
