KATHMANDU, Nov 6: Chairmen of Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP) and Rastriya Prajatantrik Party (Democratic) met to merge the two parties to strengthen democratic forces in the national political sphere.

Kamal Thapa and Pashupati Sumsher JB Rana held a "fruitful discussion and they will continue to meet to finalize the party unification," Mohan Shrestha, chief of publicity division in the RPP said.

RPP had split on April 6, 2017 citing Kamal Thapa's compromise on the party's ideology -- Hinduism and monarchy, a reason why the party lost in the local level polls.
