RJP-Nepal leaders, cadres quit party

Rajbiraj, June 6

With uncertainty regarding Rastriya Janata Party-Nepal’s participation in the second phase of civic polls slated for June 28 looming large, RJP-N leaders and cadres have started quitting the party.

The rift in the RJP-N is due to the party leadership’s stance that it will not not participate in polls unless the statute is amended. RJP-N has also formed a committee in every village to launch an agitation to disrupt polls.

Two central leaders along with dozens of party rank and file announced their disassociation from the party in Saptari today.

RJP-N leaders and cadres joined the CPN-UML at a programme in Rajbiraj.

Those who parted ways with the RJP-N and joined the UML are central leaders Suresh Singh and Lal Mohammad. Similarly, Sukhram Yadav who quit Federal Socialist Forum-Nepal has also entered the UML.

Earlier, two influential RJP-N central leaders Bhimraj Yadav and Bharat Sah quit the party.
