The Sikkim Democratic Front (SDF) chief – Pawan Chamling during a condolence meet organized in memory of former MP Bhim Dahal dubbed the leader as “one of the most successful MP till date”.

“Bhim Dahal was a highly successful Member of Parliament. Many major topic demands, such as Limboo Tamang seat reservation, Centre OBC, State OBC, were met during his term.” – noted the SDF chief.

Its worthy to note that the 3-term Lok Sabha MP and Sahitya Akademi awardee – Bhim Prasad Dahal breathed his last on Sunday at the Sir Thutob Namgyal Memorial (STNM) Hospital, following renal failure.

Survived by his two spouses and two sons, Dahal was undergoing dialysis in STNM hospital. He was 57.

A resident of Timburbung in Soreng District, Dahal won the three back to back Lok Sabha elections held in 1996, 1998 and 1999 as SDF candidate.

Chamling stated, “Dahal was a very good politician and a studious literary figure who has also contributed many books and poems to society, so we have decided to form a committee to collect all of his literary works, whether published or not, and we will print his work through Nirman Prakashan by the end of this year.”

He also urged people to spread the word about Dahal’s work so that it could be included in a future publication.

Similarly, during the ‘Sok Sabha’ or condolence meet, fellow party worker Krishna Kharel presented a brief presentation on Bhim Dahal’s life. Manita Pradhan also recounted a few recollections of Bhim Dahal, and the crowd conducted a two-minute silence in his honour. Workers from various parties congregated and offered their prayers to the deceased.
