Parasi, Jan 18: Chief Minister Shankar Pokhrel has said there was no need of raising a flag of revolt in the Nepali society. Inaugurating the Sate (5) level basic training organised by Nepal Scout at Bardaghat of West Nawalparasi today, the chief minister underlined the need of cultivating a collective feeling that the State is ours and only strengthened State would make citizens stronger.

According to him, sometimes citizens seek to create a distance with the State due to an impact of psychology shaped by the conventional movements and it seemed that a section of people in the society perceived oneself as ‘revolutionary’ against the State.

“Strong and competent State is required so that citizens could exercise their rights given by the constitution and on this condition, citizen could have a feeling of pride and it is our responsibility to build such a State,” he opined. He went on to say that the culture of labour migration had dominated the society and a large exodus of Nepali youths in search of opportunities was its result.
