Kathmandu, September 12
The fourth party in the Constituent Assembly Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal today revoked its decision to boycott CA proceedings and decided to rejoin the meetings.
The central committee meeting of the party held here today decided to quash the decision of the party’s Central Work Performance Committee to boycott the CA and to rejoin it.
On Wednesday the central task-execution committee had decided to boycott the CA meetings charging that their issues had been ignored by the CA and the major parties.
CA Chairman Subas Chandra Nembang said RPP-N Chief Whip Dilnath Giri had informed him about the party’s decision to take part in the CA meetings via telephone.
The party’s joint spokesperson Mohan Shrestha said today’s central committee meeting revoked Wednesday’s decision of the central task execution committee and decided to join the CA.
Asked why the party had decided to revoke its previous decision, Shrestha said the nation was heading towards unending conflict on the eve of drafting the new constitution and the party had registered some amendment bills at the CA and also because the party believed in rule of law and the need to take the legitimate way.
He said the party decided to safeguard the amendment bills registered at the CA.
Shrestha further said the party’s central committee meeting would continue tomorrow as well.
