KATHMANDU, Dec 17: The Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP) on Thursday announced nationwide protest programs demanding restoration of Hindu state and constitutional monarchy.
Issuing a press statement, the RPP stated that the party will hit the streets in all 77 districts from December 27.
In the first phase, the RPP will launch demonstrations in favor of the reinstatement of Hindu state and constitutional monarchy across the country, the party said.
The party's decision comes at a time when pro-monarchy protests have intensified in major cities including Kathmandu in recent weeks.
The RPP also said that it decided to launch agitation as the government failed to control corruption, religious conversion and unemployment. The RPP has also criticized the government's approach in handling the COVID-19 pandemic.
As part of its protest programs, the party said that it will submit a memorandum to the government through 77 district administration offices (DAOs) and stage protest marches on December 27. The RPP will also stage protests at all district headquarters from December 30 to January 9.
The second phase of protest programs will kickstart from the second week of January, according to the party.
Meanwhile, RPP's Central Working Committee will be held on December 20 and 21 in Kathmandu.
