KATHMANDU: Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal said it would pull out of the remaining task of constitution-making.
The party's central working committee took decision to this effect, according to RPP-N Chairman Thapa's tweet.
The fourth largest party, which won 24 seats in the Constituent Assembly elections under the proportional representation system, has been demanding that Nepal be acknowledged as a Hindu kingdom.
Speaking at the CA yesterday, Thapa had charged that the three major parties were ignoring people's aspirations and practicing politics of restriction.
When he was asked to present the amendment proposal on the Revised Bill on Nepal's Constitution 2015, which he had registered earlier, Thapa said the amendment proposal was but restricted to a formality only before the three-party highhandedness.
He did not put forth his views on the issues related to his amendment proposal.
He later told the top leaders of major parties, including UCPN-M Chairman Dahal, NC leader Ramchandra Paudel and UML Chair KP Sharma Oli, that his party would boycott the CA if they did not address the party’s demand of declaring Nepal a Hindu state.
The CA has formally begun the clause-wise discussion on the Revised Bill and the amendment proposals
