    an incompetent fella. he got so many chances to make Nepal a better place but always failed. chhoriko lahai lahaima lagera marnebelama bhako reputation pani gumyo

    Badha injar tha. Benluf or idiot beti ko DPM banaya, Santa KP ko election haraya, Nepali congress ko tutaya, sab gadho ko sar chadhaya. As a Nepali, I hated him.

  4. maha katne le haat chatcha..

    he has done a lot for the country. Corruption is his benifit. Hamile pako bhaye chodthayu. Afu le khana napaye pachi angur amilo huncha bhane jastai bhayo. He should have for at least 2 more years.

    No doubt about many of his hurting corruption acts, he should always be taken an example as we have very small pool of leaders with clean image .Even Rajiv Gandhi’s case for “Bofors scandal worth Rs 640 million” still on investigation.None politics are 100% clean …..so need to look the positive side ….
    Would like to request all of you with with my comment or against it to give some respect to the departed soul….
    May his Soul live in peace ….

    Despite of the fact that he did PHD in corruption, we must not forget his contribution for Nepali Politics in the last 5 years.
    Corruption was his -ve aspect, regarding the +ve part he played a key role to end the blood war. We people at Kathmandu could have only read or heard about the blood war, but there were many many families that were smashed in the blood war. He gave a full stop to it not only by bringing Maoists to table talk and consititution, but leaded the 7 parties in outhrowing Shahs.
    So, lets learn to appreciate.

    ……………….. well what Nepal achieved in G regime is still ???? G Fk the country, conspired for chair until his dead. In fact if possible G would have taken presidency chair with him in his grave. He was not great from any angle, he was a shit and a taboo to Nepalese society. We should celebrate rather then moaning.

    Long leave Nepal.

    now we need to make his big gaint statue for the crows and pigeon of ktm so that they can easily take shit on his statue. He was totally a load of bull dust. The main actor of royal mascare, Lauda corroption and so many things. I wil not feel any sorrow for him and i guess those who love nepal wil not feel any sorrow for that greedy shit leader.

    Nepali heart!!

    It was terrible shock ad grief to nepalese people hearing the dead of a legend who has done lots of contribution to nepalese politics. He was the advocate of peace and was always focused for contry’s betterments and its people. He would be remembered in nepalese history always.

    May his sould rest on peace.
