FIKKAL, Sept 12: Ilam has plunged into sorrow following the untimely passing of federal parliamentarian of Ilam constituency-2, Subas Chandra Nembang.

He had regularly been a parliament member by continuously winning the parliamentary elections from Ilam since 2056 BS.

Lately he was the deputy parliamentary leader of the CPN-UML. Nembang, who was the facilitator of consensus, collaboration and unity in national politics had established his image as an honest leader. He was the 'political center' for the district people.

Nembang, who was born in Suntalabar near Ilam Bazaar, joined communist politics in 2029 BS when he was a student at Ilam Campus. While advocating political change in the country, he was imprisoned in 2033 BS on a treason case.

Nembang had served the country as a member of the National Assembly in 2048 and 2052 BS. He served as the Minister for Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs in the Manmohan Adhikari-led communist government.

He had also served as the President of the Public Accounts Committee in 2056 BS.

Later, he served as the Speaker of the reinstated parliament with the success of the People's Movement of 2062-63.

After winning election from Ilam in 2064 and 2070 BS, he became the chairperson of the Constituent Assembly. He had played a coordinating role in promulgating the Constitution of Nepal 2015 from the Constituent Assembly.

He had served the country as a Speaker four times and was always picked to the post on consensus.

The district-based political leaders, social activists and students are pouring in their sorrow expression through different media after learning about the demise of their leader.

Most of them said Nembang's demise was an irreparable loss to the country.

A parliamentarian from Ilam constituency-1, Mahesh Basnet said the political center of Ilam had collapsed with his demise. His contributions to the country and the people were unparalleled, Basnet said, adding that the entire country has plunged into sorrow with his passing.

Nepali Congress Ilam District President Dambar Khadka said Nembang will be ever-remembered for his contributions to the country. It may be noted that Nembang had defeated Khadka in the last parliamentary elections.

"Nembang made substantial contributions to the development of Ilam," Khadka said, adding, "He left the world being popular among all sections from children to senior citizens"
