Lalitpur: Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minster Narayan Kaji Shrestha said the contribution of Daman Nath Dhungana and the late Padma Ratna Tuladhar in peace process could not be forgotten.

At a programme organised by the Padma Ratna Lumanti Guthi to unveil a book ‘Smriti Ma Padma Ratna Tuladhar’ (Padma Ratna Tuladhar in Memory) and to honour different individuals here today, DPM Shrestha underlined that not only in linguistic and literary movement, Tuladhar’s contribution is significant in the political movements against autocracy.

The book was published by incorporating the personality of Tuladhar, senior personality of Newa community, human right activist, and former chairperson of Nepalbhasa Manka Khala.

“We can learn more from Tuladhar’s multidimensional personality and talent. His contribution to gain democratic achievements in the Nepali society is incomparable. He was a litterateur, senor journalist, writer and people’s representative. We all should unite to fulfill Tuladhar’s dreams, respecting his contribution”, he underscored.   

Remembering his deep connection with Tuladhar, DPM Shrestha explained that an excellent work was done by publishing the book in memory of such seminal character. 

He mentioned that a book keeps a history alive.

On the occasion, former Speaker Daman Nath Dhungana viewed peace process could not be concluded in the absence of Tuladhar.

The DPM feted former Speaker Dhungana, former lawmaker Hiranya Lal Shrestha, and dignitaries. (RSS)
