Kathmandu, December 28:
Rastriya Janashakti Party (RJP) chairman Surya Bahadur Thapa warned today that the parliamentâ€™s decision â€” to declare a republic pending approval of the Constituent Assembly â€” has â€œcurtailed the rights of the peopleâ€.
â€œYou have planted poison today. Donâ€™t expect ambrosia out of it,â€ Thapa told todayâ€™s session of the parliament, adding, â€œSince the interim parliament is not an elected one, it does not have the right to seize peopleâ€™s
rights and make decisions on serious issues, including deciding the fate of the monarchy.â€
â€œThis parliament cannot dictate the people and the Constituent Assembly,â€ Thapa said.
