PM pledges to preserve identity of oppressed groups

KATHMANDU: : Prime Minister Dr. Baburam Bhattarai has pledged to draft the constitution in such a way that it would reflect the identity of oppressed and exploited groups including the Sherpas.

At a gathering organized here on Sunday to commemorate Pasang Lyamu Sherpa, the first-ever Nepali women to scale the world’s highest peak Mount Everest, Prime Minister Dr. Bhattarai expressed his commitment to promulgate an inclusive constitution that ensures the representation of all castes and communities.

The Pasang Lyamu Mountaineering Foundation organized the programme to mark the 19th memorial day of Pasang Lyamu Sherpa, the audacious Nepali woman.

‘Most probably, political parties will come to a consensus on the disputed issues in the constitution within at least a couple of days if not this evening’, he claimed, adding the constitution would be promulgated within the stipulated time.

Brave Pasang Lyamu elevated the image and glory of Nepal and Nepali people by reaching atop the highest peak, Prime Minister recalled, pledging that the government would provide the Foundation with necessary support in its every effort to immortalize the contribution by Sherpa.

Paying tribute to the late Sherpa, who clinched success to make the country and country people dignified, the Prime Minister stressed that Nepali women should move ahead taking inspiration from Pasang Lyamu.

At the programme presided over by Foundation Chairperson Kripasur Sherpa, its founder Chair Damannath Dhungana said mountaineer Sherpa is the perennial source of energy and encouragement to all women in the globe.

Pasang Lyamu saw a tragic end of her life in Baisakh 10, 2050 BS some 19 years ago while returning the base camp after successfully scaling the Mount Everest. RSS
