Kathmandu, April 22: CPN (Unified Socialist) Chairperson and former Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal acknowledged that the contribution made by late Nara Bahadur Karmacharya was unprecedented.

At a memorial programme organized by the Nara Bahadur Karmacharya Memorial Foundation at Chayasal, Lalitpur today, Chairperson Nepal recognized late Karmacharya as a heritage of the communist movement in Nepal.

Stating that only revolutionary ideologies could transform society, Nepal argued that democracy alone could not suffice in the country and saw the need for socialism-oriented democracy.

Nepal claimed that communist parties were only the catalyst for democracy in the country and emphasized the need to highlight the belief that only communists could decide the fate and future of the country whilst taking into account the development and dignity of citizens. 

He pointed out the need to play creative role to attract the attention of the people towards communist movement. According to him, the communists should bring together friends and take foes into confidence. 

On a different note, he remarked that the politics in Nepal was complicated at this moment and asserted that the alliances were being formed and being broken down among the political parties for power.

Similarly, Foundation's President and Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs Narayankaji Shrestha observed that Karmacharya's contribution in establishing the communist party in Nepal should not go unacknowledged.

Likewise, other participants such as Foundation's advisor Dr Mahesh Maskey, CPN (Maoist Centre)'s leader Leelamani Pokharel and Martyrs Foundation's President Dharma Shila Chapagain among others shed light on the various facades and facets of Karmacharya besides shedding light on the role played by him in the communist movement in Nepal.
