CHITWAN, Dec 2: Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP) Chairperson Kamal Thapa has said that RPP will present amendment proposal to the second constitution amendment bill registered at the Parliament Secretariat on last Tuesday to press for reinstatement of Nepal as a Hindu nation.
Speaking at the press conference organized by Media Nepal in Chitwan today, the RPP Chair shared that his party will hold discussion with all other parties before floating the proposal in parliament during the deliberation on the newly registered bill.
Expressing his displeasure over the government's Tuesday's move, Thapa reaffirmed his party's ideals, saying that although RPP wanted to propose for the reinstatement of Hindu nation, the bill was registered without consulting with them.
According to him, the meeting of RPP's central committee would take official decisions on the registration of the bill tomorrow.
Stating that RPP was in favor of all three levels elections within stipulated time, he urged the political parties to be united for the same.
Hinting at the disgruntled political parties, the former Deputy Prime Minister opined that the solution should be sought in a democratic manner rather than taking to streets. RSS
