JHAPA: Rastriya Prajatantra Party Nepal chairman Kamal Thapa today alleged the four major political forces – UCPN-Maoist, Nepali Congress, UML and Joint Madhesi Front – of setting up a political syndicate and bleeding the state coffers.
Speaking at the third National Convention of Rastriya Prajatantrik Youth Organisation in Jhapa, Thapa said that parties were trying to efface the integrity and identity of the country by agreeing on ethnicity-based federalism. He argued that ethnicity-based federalism would sap the country.
On a different note, Thapa ruled out the possibility of promulgation of the new statute’s within set deadline. “Even if the new constitution is brought out, it would not address the people’s aspiration,” he added.
Noting that the country was on the verge of civil war, Thapa urged the parties to rise above the partisan interest and be united for national integrity. He alleged that parties had abused the people’s mandate and declared the country monarchy, federalism and secularism agai-nst people’s aspiration.
