Newly elected PM Oli's home district celebrates occassion

- Post Report, Kathmandu

Oct 11, 2015-

Residents of the district have welcomed the news of KP Oli being elected the country’s new prime minister and believe that he will take initiatives towards development activities in the district where he was born.

As news began to surface from last week about Oli being the 38th prime minister of the country, all the people in his birth village Iwa were excited. He was born in Khanigaun at Iwa 2 (formerly Aathrai Pokhari Panchayat ward no 5) on February 23, 1952.

Outgoing vice-chairman of Iwa VDC Tulasi Sangraula said that people of the village are extremely happy for having one of their own as the prime minister. He is assured that Oli has the solution for the ongoing crisis in the country.

With the election of Oli to the PM post, people in the district believe that their relation with Kathmandu will get closer. They expect that Oli will usher in an era of development in the district. People have planned to celebrate the occasion by organising candlelight vigil throughout Sunday night. A special ceremony has been planned at Pranami Middle School (now high school), where Oli received his primary level education.

“Despite other responsibilities, Oli will focus on developing the district,” Bhupal Karki, a teacher from Fakchamara VDC, believes. “My suggestion for him is to solve the current standoff with India through dialogue.” Former District Development Committee member Laxman Tiwari said that Oli has the capacity of uniting all political powers in the country towards peace, stability and development as he is very clever and cunning.
