KATHMANDU, Sept 26: Bibeksheel Sajha Party leader Rabindra Mishra has resigned from even the general membership of the party. Mishra who had earlier resigned from the chairmanship of the party ‘following its defeat’ in the May 13 local elections submitted his resignation even as a general member of the party to Chairperson Samikshya Baskota on Monday.
“You are aware that I have been effortful for creating political polarization in order to build a greater and trustworthy ‘moderate conservative nationalist force’ for the past one year. At last, it seems that the first step toward that effort has taken a concrete shape. But as for that to happen, I have to change party, I hereby inform you that I have resigned as a general member of the party with effect from today itself,” Mishra says in the resignation letter submitted to Chair Baskota.
Mishra has further appealed to all individuals, groups and political parties to get united in order to create “a strong trustworthy moderate conservative force”.
In recent times, speculations have been rife about the possibility of Mishra joining the Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP) led by Rajendra Lingden. While Mishra has not denied reports that he has been in touch with the key leaders of the Rastriya Prajatantra Party, he has mentioned nothing about the RPP in his resignation letter.
