Damauli, March 13
Rastriya Prajatantra Party Chairperson Kamal Thapa has called on the people to take to the street to save the religious identity of the country.
Speaking at a reception organised by the party in Bandipur Rural Municipality, Tanahun, today, as a part of its Mechi-Mahakali March, the RPP chief said there was no option for the people of the country but to take to the street to protect the ancient religion.
“It’s unfortunate that the so-called major political parties are for subverting the age-old identity of the country by declaring the country secular. It’s therefore high time that the people descended to the street to foil this grand design of the parties,” he said.
On a different note, the RPP chief argued that the party’s march was necessitated by the need to protect Hinduism from attacks and to reinstate its past status as the religion of the state.
Today itself, Thapa also addressed a programme organised in Damauli and sought an end to the chaos reigning in the country. The march that started from Taplejung on February 27 will conclude in Kathmandu on March 14.
