JHAPA: Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ has paid homage to the martyrs of the Jhapa revolt.

The PM took to the social media to extend his sincere condolences to the five martyrs from the Jhapa uprising who gave their life to the cause of democracy and social justice.

“I express my high respects and heartfelt tributes to Netra Ghimire, Ramnath Dahal, Krishna Kuikel, Birendra Rajbanshi and Narayan Shrestha, the great martyrs of the Jhapa uprising, who sacrificed their life for democracy and social justice,” wrote PM Dahal in his social site post.

The Jhapa rebellion was an attempted peasant uprising that took place in Jhapa district of Nepal in 1969.

A conflict between landowners and tenants began after the land reforms program announced by then King Mahendra in 1964.

The essence of this reform initiative was to set an upper bound for land ownership and establish tenant rights over land use, but the landowners refused to honor the documents, enraging the farmers who were the tenants.

The Communist Party of Nepal (CPN) channelized the farmer disappointment into a political uprising that came to be known as the Jhapa Revolt. This revolt was inspired by Naxalbari uprising of India.
