Rastriya Prajatantra Party central Chairman Kamal Thapa today said mid-term election was the best way to settle the political crisis facing the country.

Further, Thapa added that political parties should take the snap-polls as an opportunity to give a way-out to the country mired in crisis.

Speaking at a press meet in Damak, Jhapa, Thapa held that fresh election was the only way to give a way out to the political crisis facing the country. "Holding fresh polls is the only way to resolve the political crisis. Thus, parties have to focus on polls," Thapa added.

Thapa slammed Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli and accused the ruling Nepal Communist Party of dashing people's hopes and expectations and dissolving the Parliament.

He warned that failing to hold the snap-polls would plunge the country into further crisis.

He said that any verdict of the Supreme Court on dissolution of the House of Representatives would be acceptable to his party.

On a different note, Thapa commented that federalism was not suitable for a country like Nepal. He said the country would not be able to afford the federal set-up. He added that democracy with monarchy and Hinduism was the only way to ensure a sustainable system in the country.
