RPPN has been advocating restoration of Hindu status in Nepal and reinstatement of the royal institution. The party’s two-day working committee meeting has taken a decision to move ahead with the chief goal of restoring Hindu status of the nation. Speaking at a press conference held on Tuesday RPPN chairman Kamal Thapa claimed that the Maoist party had not yet changed its former belief that the monarchy could be retained in a cultural and religious capacity.
The RPPN chairman said that he had held talks with Maoist chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ a week ago. Chairman Thapa noted that the Maoist had given a statement indicating the possibility of keeping the monarch in religious and cultural capacity after the Constituent Assembly (CA) election. He said that during his meeting with Maoist chairman Prachanda, the latter had told him that the Maoist was still in support of a cultural monarchy.
RPPN has taken a decision to launch a campaign to restore Hindu state. According to the party the relevance of the agreement reached among the three parties and that of CA after the 12 point understanding in the pretext of failure to promulgate constitution on deadline has ended.
RPPN has prophesized that the constitution and the peace process would not complete in the one-year extension of CA term, which it termed as ‘done through a wrong path’. The party also noted the danger of the possibility of an authoritarian rule under the guise of democracy would take birth in constitution-less situation.
The party is set to hold its fifth general convention by mid December after six month of organizational expansion, training and awareness campaign. The party will be holding an awareness chariot procession from Janakpur to Kathmandu via Lumbini in the period between mid October to mid November.
Singer Mira Rana, Gyanu Rana, Tirtha Kumari, Nepal Samata Party’s former vice chairman Tara Devi Ghimire among four dozen individuals, have joined the party. They were welcomed by party chairman Kamal Thapa and co-chairman Padam Sundar Lawati with garland and vermillion. The party has been taking a firm stance for a referendum on religion, monarchy and federalism.
