Giri possessed a distinct vision to understand, analyse and interpret philosophy, socialism and politics, according to Dahal.

"These all make him unique and an incomparable figure. His ideas and political culture are of highly significance with long-term relevancy."

On the occasion, the Prime Minister unveiled a life-size statue of the late Giri.

The head of the government also pledged to build a medical college in commemoration of leader Giri in Lahan, giving priorities to other physical infrastructure development in the town.

On the occasion, the Prime Minister said he is indebted to the Siraha folks who elected him in the 2070 elections, paving his way for the premiership for the second time.

Finance Minister Dr. Prakash Sharan Mahat, Minister for Foreign Affairs, Narayan Prasad (NP) Saud, National Assembly Vice-Chairperson Urmila Aryal, former ministers Matrika Prasad Yadav, Padma Narayan Chaudhary, Ajay Shanker Nayak, and Sita Devi Yadav were present at the programme.
