JANAKPURDHAM, August 2: Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP) chairman Kamal Thapa has expressed the confidence that his party would get encouraging results in the third phase local-level elections.
Speaking at the press conference organized here today by the RPP Dhanusha district working committee, Thapa said his party has been preparing for the election with high priority.
He insisted that the government and the opposition parties should create an enabling environment for the participation of Rastriya Janata Party (RJP) also in the election, alleging that the Nepali Congress was conspiring to prevent the RJP's participation in the election.
"The Nepali Congress is engaged in a premeditated manner to prevent the constitution amendment bill from being presented in the parliament for a decision. The issue of the purported RPP lawmakers' abstention at the time of passing the constitution bill in parliament is only the propaganda spread by the Nepali Congress and the CPN (Maoist Centre)," he said.
The chairman of the fourth largest party in Parliament stated that the constitutional amendment bill was not in any manner related to his party's joining or not joining the government, reiterating that his party was not joining the Deuba-led government.
Property of all leaders should be investigated: Dr. Lohanai.
Meanwhile, chairman of the Unified Rastriya Prajatantra Party Nepal Rastrabadi, Dr Prakash Chandra Lohani, speaking at a separate press conference in Janakpurdham today, demanded an independent investigation into the property of the leaders of all the parties.
He alleged what he called the rise of lesser kings in the country as the major political parties have cultivated the culture of power-sharing in all the state bodies and mechanism.
Leader Lohani expressed concern over the country's weakening economy and said this was because of the lack of participatory state governance. He also stressed on the need of implementing development projects for the development of Janakpur keeping in mind its historical uniqueness. RSS
