KATHMANDU, Nov 13: Rastriya Prajatantra Party (Democratic) Chairman Pashupati Shumsher Rana has accused Kamal Thapa, chairman of Rastriya Prajatantra Party Nepal, of being a stumbling block to the process of unification.
Speaking at an interaction organized by Reporters Club Nepal in the capital on Tuesday, Rana said that Thapa's stance to keep party name, flag and election symbol created hindrance in the party unification process.
However, Kamal Thapa has denied Rana's allegations saying that his statement is baseless and against the spirit of the party unification. "The cow, which is the symbol of entire Hindus, as an election symbol and commitment toward monarchy cannot be compromised and that these are the minimum terms and conditions he must agree to," Thapa tweeted.
पशुपतिजीको अभिव्यक्ति गलत र एकताको भावना बिपरित छ।राजसंस्थावारे स्पष्ट प्रतिबद्धता र हिन्दुत्वको प्रतिक 'गाई'चुनावचिन्ह एकताको न्युनतम शर्त भन्ने उहाँले बुझ्नुपर्छ।उहाँको भनाईबाट स्पष्ट हुन्छ एकता किन/कसले बिथोल्यो।आरोप प्रत्यारोप होइन,लाखौ पार्टी कार्यकर्ताको भावनाको सम्मान गरौं https://t.co/sAoEx7vscA
The party unification between RPP Nepal led by Thapa, RPP Democratic led by Rana and Unified RPP Nationalist led by Dr. Prakash Chandra Lohani has not yet been realized despite efforts by the top-notch leaders.
However, it is learnt that the top three leaders have agreed to Hinduism as state religion.
