RPP-Nepal Chairman Kamal Thapa eulogises late King Prithvi-the unifier

Telegraph Nepal

The Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal organized a tea party in Kathmandu to celebrate the 290th birth anniversary of Nepal’s Unifier King Prithvi Narayan Shah, January 11, 2011.

Also present on the occasion were Vice President Parmananda Jha and Chair of the Constituent Assembly Subash Chandra Nembang.

Surprising, isn’t it?

Former Prime Ministers, political leaders, civil society activists, media personnel and industrialists graced the occasion.

The party also led a procession at the Western Gate of Singh durbar- the government secretariat, and paid homage at the statue of late King P. N. Shah.

Addressing a small gathering of nationalists Chairman Kamal Thapa claimed that had King P. N. Shah not initiated the campaign of integrating the country-then divided in several states and principalities, there would have been no Nepal to what it stands today.

Thapa demanded the government to declare Poush 27 as the national unity day to recognize the contributions of Great King Prithvi.

Each year, prior to the presumed and widely believed India sponsored April 2006 changes, Poush 27 (B.S.) used to be celebrated as the National Unity day.

  • To answer Ravan Babu: Actually there was no SEA of humans. A few hundred thousand doesn't make. They were havoc creators. Most of them frustrated unemployed youth and goons and terror creators of the Maoists party and Seven party - known as SPAM of Nepal. These people are the 'lost generation' of Nepal. They have been made so by the 17 years of terror created by the (un)democratic, unethical rule of political parties as well as the terrorists (Maoists). They created terror for more than 20 days in Kathmandu destroying and killing everything that came their way. They were provided money by SPAM alliance to do this and the money came to SPAM from India. It was not a revolution. It was hooliganism and this hooliganism took place only in Kathmandu. Kathmandu is not Nepal! Nepal is wider, bigger and more comprehensive. So just because something happened in Kathmandu, a dictatorial democracy should not be imposed in Nepal.

  • I am very poor in politics and international relations. But your last sentence "...presumed and widely believed India sponsored April 2006 changes..." drew my attention. May I humbly ask the writer whether the sea of humans that flooded the streets in those last days were actually Indians or were they Nepalese mobilized by India ?
