Gurkha soldiers enhanced Nepal’s prestige: DPM Pokharel


“Due to the goodwill earned by the British Gurkhas, Nepal has got an opportunity to serve in various 14 places across the world under the Peace-Keeping force of the United Nations,” he observed.
Extending his condolences to the Gurkha soldiers who died in line with their duty, he asserted that Nepal could also mobilize the huge human resources of the former army and security personnel in the process of nation-building.
He spoke of the need to work with a solid action-plan to utilize the knowledge, skills and experience of the retired Grukha soldiers for advancing the cause of economic transformation.
Stating that the first year of the incumbent government was spent in laying the foundation for the nation-building, the DPM said that the government would introduce solid plan, programmes and polices. DPM Pokharel said that government would take decision about record keeping of the Nepalis working as a soldiers or security personnel in the neighboring countries as the demand raised by the stakeholders for the same was genuine.
He also expressed his happiness over the effort of the concerned agencies to keep the pension of the retired Gurkha soldiers in the same basket for the greater good of the country.
On the occasion, Nepal Communist Party Kaski District Chapter and Province Assembly member Krishna Thapa echoed with DPM Pokharel and said the Gurkha soldiers had helped Nepal earn reputation due to their integrity.
