RPP not to support constitution amendment bill: Thapa
HETAUNDA: The Chairman of the Rastriya Prajatantra Party Kamal Thapa has said that the party has decided to vote against the constitution amendment bill tabled at the Legislature-Parliament.
A meeting of the party's central working committee held after the party's split, in Hetaunda, made the decision today.
Earlier, the unified RPP had decided to vote for the constitution amendment bill. However, after the split in party, RPP made their mind to vote against the amendment bill, Thapa said.
Meanwhile, a clause wise deliberation on the constitutional amendment bill is going on at the Parliament.
Thapa also accused the ruling coalition government for playing active role in hatching conspiracy of the party's split.
Former DPM Thapa also said that the party decided to vote against the constitution amendment bill as the Deuba-led government is not serious about Madhes issues and not holding any discussion regarding the reinstatement of Hindu state in the country.
"we decided to vote against the constitution amendment bill tabled at the House, despite repeated pleading by the main opposition party to stand against the bill brought against the national interest," Thapa shared.
Earlier, Thapa had joined the Dahal-led government, however, backed off after an impeachment motion was filed against the Chief Justice Sushila Karki.
It has been learned that without RPP support the government won't have two third majority to endorse the bill.
