Tibetan Parliament Remembers G P Koirala’s Support For Tibetans in Nepal[Tuesday, 23 March 2010, 4:54 p.m.]


Dharamshala:
The Tibetan Parliament in Exile (TPIE) has written a condolence message
to the family members of Girija Prasad Koirala, former prime minister
of Nepal, who passed away on 20 March 2010. He was 85.“The
departure of H E Girija Prasad Koirala to the heavenly abode, is a
great lost not only to Nepal but also for all those who believe in
democracy. He was not only the national guardian of Nepal but also a
source of inspiration for many of us, struggling for our democratic and
natural rights,” said Deputy Speaker Dolma Gyari in the letter dated 23
March.“At this sad hour, I, on behalf of the Tibetan Parliament
in Exile extend to the august family of Koirala, the Nepali Congress
Party and the people of Nepal, our sincere condolence and solidarity.“The
love and affection of Girija Babu for the poor, deprived and the
Tibetan refugees in Nepal shall be always remembered. May the triple
Gem – the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha – bless you and your party to carry
forward the legacy of the veteran leader,” the letter noted.
