March 29, 2013:

                 Former Deputy Prime Minister and Vice-Chairman

of CPN (UML) Comrade Bamdev Gautam said –“19 years ago I had an opportunity to

meet President KIM IL SUNG in Pyongyang together with Comrade Madhav Kumar

Nepal and Modnath Prasit. It was my first foreign visit except India and first

opportunity to meet, talk and lunch together with such a great communist leader

of a communist party. I could not meet Marx, Lenin, Angel, Mao in my life but

when I met Comrade KIM IL SUNG, I felt as if I met all of them. When we talked

I felt as if we were receiving Fatherly love and care from him. President

 mentioned us that every communist party should

go ahead according to the special situation of its own country and supported

CPN UML’s the then principle of supporting constitutional monarchy based on the

special condition in Nepal. After the liberation of Korea, President said-

Russia wanted to help DPRK by establishing some big factories in Korea, but

President Kim IL Sung asked if it could help by establishing a paper and pencil

factory, because to disseminate the Juche idea and to sustain the peoples’

right, country-men should be educated and for that paper and pencil are

pre-requisites.”

                Vice-Chairman Comrade Gautam was

recalling his, meeting with President Kim IL Sung at a special talk program

organized by Nepal Journalists Association for the Study of Juche Idea and

Songun Policy to celebrate the 101st Sun’s Day in Kathmandu. He continued

–“American

Imperialist is now conducting activities in its strategic plan to dismantle

North Korea by continuing all-round blockade.In my opinion this 21st century is the

century of the

end of the imperialists all over the world. President Kim Il Sun’s last wish

was to reunify the two Koreas. I wish his last desire will be fulfilled by the

present leadership and Korea will be still prosperous and develop its socialism

still stronger and cultured and the cordial relationship existing between our

two countries and peoples will remain forever.”

and Chairman of President KIM IL SUNG and Comrade KIM JONG IL National Memorial

of President KIM IL SUNG and said that he always opposed foreign domination and

flunky and puppet character. Nepalese political leaders should learn from him
