Former NEA MD Kulman Ghising.
KATHMANDU: The Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) bade farewell to Managing Director Kulman Ghising organizing a program on Tuesday.
Ghising retired yesterday after completion of his four-year term as the head of the NEA.
At the program, senior Deputy MD Hitendra Dev Shakya praised the outgoing MD Ghising as an honest and diligent person.
“With Ghising’s successful leadership in the last four years at NEA, we all employees felt proud of working here. Even his enemy respects him.”
Similarly, another deputy executive director Harraj Neupane remembered Ghising as an energetic person. He hoped that atmosphere would be built to appoint Ghising as the MD again.
Deputy Executive Director Lekhnath Koirala shared the impression of public trust on NEA while Coordinator of Authorized Union Rameshwor Poudel believed that Ghising would be reappointed as MD by removing legal snags.
In his farewell remarks, Ghising observed, “When I took responsibility, the country was reeling under darkness with acute load shedding. Even the rainy season saw six to eight hours of a power outage. But, working in cooperation with good intention, scientific management, good balance between demand and supply of electricity made NEA possible to declare the country free of load shedding.”
With the able leadership of Ghising, the NEA, which was at a loss of nearly Rs 34 billion, became successful in earning the profit of some Rs 11 billion in the last four years.
