Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli released the memoir Chaya Ko Laskar by Professor KR Khambu at a special ceremony at the Prime Minister’s residence in Baluwatar on September 26. After releasing the book, PM Oli shared his memories with the author during the Jhapa revolution and the political movement during the Panchayat era. The Prime Minister who is also the co-chair of Nepal Communist Party (NCP) said that he had two dreams: seeing the author achieving a PhD degree and utilising his knowledge for the development of the nation. Unfortunately, after completing his PhD degree, KR Khambu lost vision in both eyes, Oli said.
“During those days, I urged him to pursue higher studies and not to indulge in active politics.” Praising the author, PM Oli said “KR Khambu was a very loyal, dedicated and patriotic cadre of our party. Despite losing his sight, his work, knowledge and wisdom are inspirational for generations to follow.” He also shared memories during their times in Biratnagar and Jhapa. The book unfolds many political events, the left-movement, and Jhapa revolution. “I am extremely happy that my memoir is unveiled by PM Oli,” said Professor Khambu and thanked the publication house Nepa~laya for publishing the book. After retiring from an active political career, the author is currently associated with Mechi Campus in Jhapa district.
The book is priced at Rs 545.
