"The departure of H E Girija Prasad Koirala to the heavenly abode, is a great loss not only to Nepal but also for all those who believe in democracy. He was not only the national guardian of Nepal but also a source of inspiration for many of us, struggling for our democratic and natural rights," Mrs Dolma Gyari of the Tibetan Parliament in exile said in the letter.
"At this sad hour, I, on behalf of the Tibetan Parliament in Exile extend to the august family of Koirala, the Nepali Congress Party and the people of Nepal, our sincere condolences and solidarity."
"The love and affection of Girija Babu for the poor, deprived and the Tibetan refugees in Nepal shall be always remembered. May the triple Gem - the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha - bless you and your party to carry forward the legacy of the veteran leader," Dolma Gyari went on to say.
