Two pro-royalist parties to announce unity in April

KATHMANDU: At a time preparations are on for holding the elections of the constituent assembly by June 7, two pro-royalist parties have decided to unify in a formal process.

Surya Bahadur Thapa-led Rastriya Janashakti Party (RJP) and Pashupati Shumsher Rana -led Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP) have decided to unify in a formal process.

Organizing a press conference in the Capital on Saturday, leaders of both the parties, who had agreed in principle to unify the two parties, have informed that the unification process will be done in the unity convention on April 5-8.

Addressing the press meet, Chairperson of RJP Thapa said that the parties were getting unified to never split after the unification. “The party will never split again. The split game is over,” said Thapa. Thapa had formed Rastriya Janashakti Party on March 113, 2005 after Rana took to street against Thapa’s government.

Similarly speaking on the occasion, RPP Chairman Rana said that the revival of monarchy was not possible. The leaders however informed that there is no possibility of party unity with Kamal Thapa led Rastriya Prajatantra Party Nepal, which has been strongly advocated for constitutional monarch.

RJP and RPP detached themselves from the institution of monarchy after the popular uprising of April 2006, which has ousted the 240-year-old institution of monarchy from the country.
