Chairman Kamal Thapa of Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal has threatened political parties to implement the deal reached between the then King Gyanendra Bir Bikram Shah and seven agitating parties in April, 2006, else he claimed he will immediately make the deal public.
It is tentatively a challenge to the former NOIDA men.
Thapa’s remarks have come at a time when some leaders particularly, UML Chairman Jhalnath, senior leader Madhav and Nepali Congress’s Krishna Prasad Sitaula been challenging the former king to make the deal public. They have also been claiming that there exists no such deal as claimed by the former king to retain the institution of monarchy.
“What is the difficulty in making the real deal public”, said Thapa and added, “It can be done even tomorrow.”
Thapa made these challenging remarks at a program in Nepalgunj, July 15, 2012.
Jhalnath, Madhav and Sitaula have already labelled the former king as a liar.
Thapa, “I warn them not to tease the King. What was the need for them to lash out at the King for his remarks? This in itself is the proof that there indeed exists such a deal.”
“There is no constitutional obstacle to reinstate monarchy as parties have failed to give the country a new constitution. Yet the King preferred not to make much hue and cry over it. He still wants to remain as a common citizen of the country. On the contrary, the parties are provoking him and want him to shut his mouth and restrict him from travelling across the country.”
Thapa also urged all the political forces including monarchy to unite as the country was heading towards grave accident.
