At a programme organised at the Martyrs’ Memorial Park in Lainchaur today, PM Oli asserted that no one would need to become martyrs in the fight for rights now onwards as the democratic regime has been already set up in the country.

Stressing the need of unity within the country to propel the agenda of good governance and economic development in line with the dream of martyrs, he said it was the time to usher the country to economic transformation through ‘Prosperous Nepal and Happy Nepali’ campaign.

“Let us all come up with resolution today again to end corruption by maintaining good governance. Let us hand over the country with equality of rights, people’s respect and rule of law to the generation to come”.

On the occasion, a contingent of Nepal Army had offered a guard of honour to the martyrs.

lso on the occasion, Kathmandu Metropolitan City Mayor Bidya Sundar Shakya highlighted the need to work to cherish the dream of martyrs.

Also present on the occasion were ministers, chiefs of constitutional bodies and security agencies, high-ranking government officials and people’s representatives.

Earlier today, the Kathmandu Metropolitan City had organised a rally from Ratna Park to Lainchaur on the same occasion. The rally was attended by distinguished personalities including Home Minster Ram Bahadur Thapa and civilians.

The Martyr’s day is celebrated in Nepal on 16th of Magh every year in memory of Shukra Raj Shastri, Dharma Bhakta Mathema, Dasharath Chand and Ganga Lal Shrestha, who obtained martyrdom in the fight for freedom against Rana regime in 1941.
