Sagar Dhakal is an Engineer turned Politician from Nepal who has been making several headlines since the recent Election.
Why is everyone suddenly talking about Sagar Dhakal? Is he someone people should be aware of? Let us talk in brief about his past as well as present involvements and contribution.
Sagar Dhakal Biography: Who Is He?
Sagar Dhakal isn’t a new name for the people of Nepal. He first became the center of attention 5 years ago after making an unforgettable appearance in a public debate show hosted by Bidya Chapagain.
The public debate show had Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba as the main guest and people were given chances to talk directly to the then-PM. In addition, the show was called ” Sajha Sawal” and was presented by BBC Media.
Sagar was also given a chance in the show to talk to the PM and he was well prepared for that. He courageously asked Deuba when would Nepal also get a properly suited and educated PM like any other developed country.
He also pointed out that since Deuba’s tenure, Nepal had gone downhill in development works. His words made an immediate change in the atmosphere of the room.
Everyone from that room found the queries necessary and to the point but former PM Sher Bahadur Deuba wasn’t pleased. He immediately replied in a furious tone to Dhakal saying ” You are talking unnecessarily, Shut Up….”
The actual video of Deuba and Dhakal from Sajha Sawal instantly went viral all over Social media.
Sagar Dhakal’s Come Back In 2022 Election
After 5 years since his first appearance on National TV, Sagar Dhakal made a comeback in late 2021. After completing his education, he returned with the only intention to win the election and become the next Prime Minister of Nepal.
He made it public with several interviews that he had challenged Sher Bahadur Deuba for the House of Representative Seat from Dadeldhura. Moving on, he stood up as an independent candidate with no previous connection to Politics whatsoever.
