POKHARA: At a time when the political parties are busy to finalize their agendas for the election of the Constituent Assembly slated for November 19, Chairperson of pro-royalist Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal (RPP-Nepal) Kamal Thapa has said nationalism will be his party’s key agenda in the November 19 election.
Thapa, who has been advocating for revival of constitutional monarchy and Hindu Kingdom, has claimed that his party would emerge as a new political force from the forthcoming election.
“There is still doubts over November 19 elections as four major political parties are failing to convince people that the election will happen on time,” Thapa said.
According to him, the election bears no meaning if the dissenting parties did not take part in it for the new CA cannot draft the constitution. Thapa has been demanding that the President and the Chairperson of Interim Election Government should take the responsibility of facilitating the process of holding round-table conference to bring the dissenting parties on board.
Thapa stressed that the CA election should be taken an alternative to strengthen national sovereignty by defeating the ‘elements’ who surrender in front of ‘foreign forces’.
Thapa said that the incidence of Indian security men raiding a house in Bardiya district had raised questions over national sovereignty and was a clear example of Indian infringement on Nepali territory.
Meanwhile, CPN-UML secretary Yuvaraj Gyawali said a new constitution could not be drafted if his party did not get a majority in the upcoming election to the Constituent Assembly (CA).
Speaking at a program in Nawalparasi, leaders Gyawali urged the people to be confident that the election will happen as per the schedule. He said the constitution could not be promulgated earlier since the UCPN-Maoist became the largest party in the first CA election.
