KATHMANDU: Chairman of the Rastriya Janashakti Party (RJP) Surya Bahadur Thapa has said that the present political crisis could not be resolved because of personal and partisan interests of the leaders. At a face-to-face programme organised at his Maligaun residence on Wednesday, he said there is no alternative to consensus, adding that all constitutional bodies are vacant and warned of unexpected crisis in the country. He said if leaders give up personal interests, the positive results can come and the leaders are capable for that. On another query, he said the statement of the UCPN-Maoist Chairman of ruling for 20-25 years is a childish statement and it is not a matter of debate.
