Kathmandu, May 29: Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has said mentality dominated and controlled by inherited supremacy could not be a glorious culture of Nepalese.
PM said the nation of inherited supremacy was just a myth, stating the glorious history of Nepal began with the republic states, ancient civilization and freedom at a high scale.
In his address a special ceremony organized at Army Pavilion, Tundikhel, on the occasion of 12th Republic Day today, the PM said any move and gesture not acknowledging the achievements of people will be against the essence of a democratic republic.
Recalling the ancient history, the PM said, “ancient leading figures depicted as kings in history were republic heroes in the real sense because they used to be chosen by people. But those who stormed into power through undemocratic ways on the ground of inherited supremacy were the protectors and promoters of feudalism, not kings.”
He added the ultimate goal of the country is peace, stability, development, prosperity and good governance. As he stated, the government is for the campaign to ensure the realization of democracy at people’s level.
The PM further asserted that the irrelevant policy and structures are scrapped to pave way for good governance and development.
Stating that the government was determined to bring happiness in the face of Nepali people, PM Oli expressed his confidence that people from all walks of life would join the government’s motto of ‘Prosperous Nepal, Happy Nepali’.
Present at the event organized by the Republic Day Main Organizing Committee were President, Chief Justice, Speaker of the National Assembly, Chairperson of the National Assembly, Deputy-Prime Minister and Minister for Defence, Minister for Home Affairs among others, high-ranking officials and security officers.
