Narayan Kaji Shrestha (Spokesman, Nepal Communist Party) - Fireside | 10 December 2018

Posted by Dhruba Shrestha December 10, 2018 :
Senior Nepal Communist Party leader Narayan Kaji Shrestha has tendered his resignation as party spokesperson following argument with Co-chairman KP  Sharma Oli.

At a recent NCP Secretariat meeting, PM Oli sought clarification from Shrestha over his meeting with Dr Govinda KC who was on a hunger strike demanding reforms in the medical education sector. During the meeting, Shrestha spoke in favour of Dr KC’s “Satyagraha” and urged the government to consider his demands.

While Shrestha was speaking, PM Oli intervened and asked him why he had met Dr KC without party’s permission. The PM said Dr KC was staging a hunger strike at the behest of some elements that are hatching conspiracy to fail the government.PM Oli called the Mathema report “against people’s will and reactionary”, according to NCP leaders present at the meeting. Then a heated debate ensued between PM Oli and Shrestha over Dr KC’s hunger strike. The PM also took strong exception to Shrestha’s meeting with former chief justice Sushila Karki and human rights activist Krishna Pahadi who were supporting Dr KC’s hunger strike.


Guide of the month: January 2018

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
