Kamal Thapa revives demands for constitutional monarchy, Hindu kingdom

SINDHULI: Chairman of the Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal (RPP-N), Kamal Thapa, has demanded that the Constitution should be amended so as to reestablish the constitutional monarchy and the Hindu kingdom.

Addressing a training programme for cadres of his party in Bardibas of Mahottari district, he said, "We kept our demands aside adopting the democratic process during the Constitution promulgation. Now, the ruling parties and the Madhes-based parties have been raising voices for Constitution amendment. Then, our demands should be included in the amendment."

Meanwhile, Thapa said that the greed for power among the political parties led the country to crisis.

Addressing the district-level gathering organised by the party's Sindhuli unit, in Sindhulimadhi today, Chairman Thapa said the country was facing a long transition and had not been able to move ahead as per the people's expectation after the promulgation of the Constitution in September last year.

He blamed the political parties for indulging in power games, rather than working to end the transition by implementing the Constitution.
