KATHMANDU, May 6: Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal Saturday visited the Nepali Congress central party office, Sanepa, to pay his final tribute to the mortal body of NC senior leader Marshal Julum Shakya who passed away at the Grande International Hospital, Kathmandu early today. He was 77.
At the unhappy moment, the Prime Minister said the demise of leader Shakya, a true democratic fighter, had caused a great loss to the Nepali politics.
Recalling his significant contributions to the restoration of democracy in the country, he said Shakya was the personality who for the first time had come to the street against monarchy after the then King Mahendra dissolved the elected parliament and took over the State power on December 15, 1960.
He expressed his hope that the politics of dedication practiced by Shakya will remain as an example for all political leaders in the country. RSS
