Urlabari, Morang, March 31 (RSS): Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli remembered late leader Madan Bhandari to be a real hero of the Nepali society.
“His ideology is still relevant even after 25 years of his passing away, and the country has been moving ahead embracing his vision and ideologies,” PM Oli said inaugurating the silver jubilee ceremony of the Madan Bhandari Memorial Academy in Urlabari-3, Morang on Sunday.
On the occasion, Oli inaugurated the general assembly of the Academy and an engineering college and unveiled a monument.
“The country will pursue development and good governance embracing vision of Bhandari,” said the PM.
He also stressed the need for all three governments-federal, provincial and local to come together to develop the Academy as he argued that development of the Academy that provides education to the people was the development of the society.
In another context, following the successful conclusion of the Investment Summit, PM Oli said a conference on international research would be organised within the current fiscal year of 2018/19 targeting youths.
He also inspected the Madan Bhandari Museum set up here in memory of Bhandari.
