CHITWAN, April 22: Rastriya Prajatantra Party Nepal (RPP-N) Chairman Kamal Thapa said on Sunday the country is now standing on the threshold of a despotic rule.
Addressing the inaugural session of the party’s Chitwan district committee meet, Thapa argued that the delay in local body’s elections now for over a decade and the status of Constituent Assembly as ‘rubber stamp’ have created ground for authoritarian rule in the country.
The CA can’t decision on its own and the three big parties are only capable of endorsing decisions taken in a closed room, Thapa said, accusing the leaders of fostering dictatorship in the country.
He also criticized the leaders for holding talks at resort hotels, rather than holding broader political consultation on constitution making and said the country is in dire need of a strong democratic force.
He also reiterated that his party is in favor of a political system that recognizes Nepal as a Hindu state with monarchy and prefers local autonomy to federalism.
