Kamal Thapa who is leading the single royalist party, the Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal, has advised leaders of Nepal’s major political parties to restore their lost links (or made to break?) with the former monarch Gyanendra Shah and take his wise counsels seriously.
“The political parties are terribly afraid of the former King. Else why would they make irrelevant criticisms to his appropriate suggestions”, said Thapa while addressing a program in Ithari of Sunsari District, March 10, 2012.
“The parties need to take his words seriously and act upon the advices to revive their lost prestige among the public,” Thapa opined.
During his fresh trip to the eastern region the former king had advised political parties to strengthen nationalism, public security and democracy.
“These were his benevolent suggestions. They unnecessarily fear him. Thus they need to unite with the former monarch instead being afraid of him”, he added.
“The Prime Minister and some ministers unnecessarily criticized him for his remarks,” he said and added, “Even as a normal citizen of the country he holds the right to speak.”
After the o62-63 changes what have the people got, asked Thapa and he himself replied, violence and impunity. The so-called peoples’ uprising was itself initiated with the wrong motive”, he held.
He also requested the attending mass to raise their voice in favour of a referendum to decide the fate of monarchy, secularism and federalism.
