RJP warns of further political crisis

Kathmandu, August 7:

The Rastriya Janashakti Party (RJP) today warned of further political crisis if constitutional forces do not patch up with the palace soon. RJP prophets announced this at the end of the latest round of the meeting of their central committee held on Friday and today.

“We have assessed the latest political events. What we feel is the nation may face further trouble if the concerned constitutional forces do not strike up a rapport,” RJP leader Sarvendra Nath Shukla said.

Shukla said the crisis was compounding since February 1, and added that his party had taken serious note of the unfolding scenario in which the distance between the monarch and political parties was growing and thus causing frustration.

He said the RJP was still not aware of what the statement of unity of purpose between pro-parliamentary forces and Maoist rebels meant. “None of us knows whether the unity of purpose is a result of the stubbornness demonstrated by the monarch or anything else,” Shukla said.

Shukla said the RJP would come clear about its fears over the impending additional crisis in about a fortnight.
