Before a crowd of more than 800 national officials and dignitaries, including the Minister of Federal Affairs and General Administration, the Chairman of the Public Service Commission, ambassadors, government officials and engaged citizens, Ram Bahadur Kurumbang was named Nepal’s Integrity Idol Winner for 2018 on December 7.
Chosen from over 1,000 nominees from across the country, Kurumbang found popularity in his efforts to bring government to the doorsteps of citizens through mobile government camps. He also ensured that he visited citizens twice a month to discuss issues with them in person. These efforts have earned him the respect of service seekers, fellow colleagues, and now a national recognition.
The winner was decided based on the votes received both online and offline. This year the total votes received was 132,256. Of these votes, Kurumbang won with the highest share of 57,154 votes.
