SURKHET, April 12: Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP) has warned of withdrawing from the government if the local-level elections scheduled for May 14 is deferred.

Stating the party joined the government to ensure elections on the stipulated date, RPP leader and former minister Resham Lama said his party would no longer stay in the government if the election was delayed.

“We want the election to be held on time. Our party will quit the government within a minute if any conspiracy is hatched to delay the election,” said Lama at an event in Birendranagar, Surkhet, on Wednesday.

Lama said his party was ready to make sacrifice to ensure timely elections. He even expressed dissatisfaction over the Election Commission's (EC) decision to remove “Hindu state” and “monarchy” from the party statue.
