President Ramchandra Paudel has said the governance weaknesses are to be overcome by our political righteousness and it is necessary for us to make democracy result-oriented by establishing its sanctity.

At a programme organised at Sheetal Niwas on Wednesday on the occasion of Constitution Day and National Day, 2080, President Paudel said, "We must remain watchful to make sure that the achievements of people's movements are not again weakened from any quarter. We should remain alert to ensure that the provisions of democratic constitution are not subverted from anywhere."

He mentioned that the present Constitution has not only ended all kinds of discrimination and inequalities nurtured under authoritarian, centralized and unitary state systems but has also made Nepali people sovereign of state power in a real sense.

"Our constitution, while stipulating federal democratic republic has not only envisaged political, economic, social, religious and cultural freedoms but also justice to the helpless and income to the indigent," President Paudel said, "The diverse range of rights, provisioned in the constitution are aimed at providing unhindered freedom to the destitute people while giving them opportunities to uplift their life standards."

Politically, the country has attained 'republic', the highest level of achievement that people aspired for a long time but the true meaning of the republic remains to be understood and internalized, he viewed, adding it still remains for us to properly understand that the republic is the system that not only ensures people's direct participation but also accepts people to transform their conduct in accordance with spirit of the system.

The President viewed that there is an ample possibility of making the country a distinct nation with Nepali ingenuity and as the world's one of the advanced nations and have an important opportunity before the people. But this is possible only if we all work relentlessly to bring about drastic and righteous changes in our conduct and character in consonance with the democratic culture.

There is no alternative to moving ahead protecting the Constitution and safeguarding the political achievements, he shared. "Our culture and nature have opened for us the door of infinite possibility to generate employment and income in the country. If we could properly harness the energy sector, modernize the agricultural realm and expand tourism domain, of course by ensuring good governance and ending all kinds of mismanagement, Nepal can easily reach the category of the world's one of the advanced nations", said the President.

The President said the country has been hit by natural disasters triggered by climate change for the past several years, pointing out the need to move ahead in a concrete manner with the international community for addressing the challenges posed by the climate crisis.

He also paid heartfelt tributes to martyrs who sacrificed their valuable lives for the establishment of democratic republic in Nepal, expressing sincere gratitude to the democratic fighters who endured imprisonment and also exile during democratic movements and remained unwaveringly active in favour of the political transformation in the country.

Present on the occasion were Vice-President Ramsahaya Prasad Yadav, Acting Prime Minister Purna Bahadur Khadka, Chief Justice Bishwombhar Shrestha, Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba, Chairperson of CPN (Unified Socialist) Madhav Kumar Nepal, former Chairperson of Council of Minister, Khilraj Regmi, Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Narayan Kaji Shrestha, ministers, former lawmakers, high-ranking officials of government, heads and representatives of diplomatic missions in Nepal, media persons as well as other personalities.
