RPP will not join Deuba-led government: Thapa

HETAUNDA: The Rastriya Prajatantra Party Chairman Kamal Thapa on Thursday has announced that it won't join the incumbent coalition government led by Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba.

Thapa, addressing a cadres training progamme organised by the RPP Makwanpur in Hetaunda Sub-Metropolitan City today, accused the current government's bad intention and its lackey nature.

Former DPM Thapa questioned,"RPP is not power-centric, after Janaandolan, RPP has joined the government only twice, how could you blame RPP as power centric party,".

Chairman Thapa urged the incumbent government to create a conducive environment for all the political parties to participate in the third phase of local level elections in Province number 2 on September 18.

"Rastriya Janata Party Nepal is also willing to take part in the local polls, so, the government should bring RJP-N on board the local polls to thwart secessionist and extremist forces getting strong hold in the Terai region," Thapa added.

Thapa also said that the failure to bring on board the agitating RJP-N in local polls would benefit the secessionist and extremist forces in the Terai region.

Meanwhile, Thapa stressed that RPP will not back away from its agenda of reinstating Nepal as a Hindu State.

He also clarified that RPP has not deviated from its agenda.
