Kathmandu, June 8:

Dr Prakash Chandra Lohani, the vice-chairman of the Rastriya Janashakti Party, today said Maoists would ultimately reap the benefit from the power struggle among the constitutional forces in the country.

Addressing a programme, he said those who do not believe in constitutional democracy would outrun the political game if the democratic factors fail to make a consensus among them at the need of the hour.

“The crux of the political culture is that one should be able to work together even with those whom you do not like. And, this is what Nepal is lacking at the present,” he said. Dr Lohani stressed the need for parliament and asked all the parties to come up with a middle path.

In a separate report from Janakpurdham, NC (D) leader Bimlendra Nidhi said there was a need of a broad discussion on constitutional monarchy and multiparty democracy. Nidhi said as active monarchy and multiparty democracy cannot go together, the agitation launched by the seven parties was a must. If the RNA had assisted Deuba, elections could have been held in phase wise manner, Nidhi said.
