HETAUDA: Rastriya Prajatantra Party Nepal chairman Kamal Thapa today said the four parties – the Unified CPN-Maoist, Nepali Congress, CPN-UML and the United Democratic Madhesi Front – trying to form a government by mere agreeing on certain issues cannot be termed as the national consensus government.
Speaking at the inaugural function of the fifth general convention of the National Democratic Student Organisation in Hetauda, Thapa said that his party would not accept such a government as a national consensus government.
Stating that there is no possibility of promulgation of statute by May 27, he added, “Even if the new constitution was promulgated, it would be worthless. Such a statute would be considered as one prepared in the interest of political parties including the Madhesi Front rather than the will of all Nepalis.”
Thapa opined that the formulation of strong independent local body is better than federalism, which is formed on the basis ethnicity. “We cannot witness Nepal fragmenting into pieces,” he added.
