The Chairman of the RPP-Nepal Kamal Thapa has proved himself to be one of the most smart player of Nepali politics as it stands today in a turbulent situation. Whether he is or not, only time will tell.
Kamal Thapa is learnt to have exploited the fragile situation of the country brought tentatively, at least this is what the major parties, NC and the UML, think and conclude, by the ruling Maoist’s arrogant attitude which is also associated with State capture desire has recently met with practically all the major party leaders like, Sushil Koirala, Jhal Nath Khanal, Chairman Dahal and talked on how to get the country out of the present political impasse.
A clever Thapa upon meeting with today’s heroes and builders of Nepal, claims the Dristi weekly dated August 21, 2012, met with the Nepal’s former Monarch on August 16, 2012, last Thursday, at Nirmal Nivas.
Thapa while meeting with the former Nepali sovereign must have, let’s presume, briefed the latter of his own condensed version of what the political leaders have been thinking of the current troubled Nepali politics.
Writes Dristi weekly, while meeting RPP-Nepal Chairman, the now sidelined King asked Thapa, what if, in his own words, (sic), “A Front be formed comprising of those scattered population and of the political parties which favor the revival of the Nepali monarchy together with the Hindu state”.
This means that the former King remains in an excited state.
Yet Kamal Thapa responded the former King by stating that it would be far better if instead of the formation of a Front as desired by the former Nepal King, a Broader Nationalist-Democratic Alliance be in place.
Kamal Thapa met Sushil Koirala August 14, 2012, and the following day, August 15, 2012, he met with Chairman Jhal Nath Khanal, UML Party General secretary Ishwar Pokhrel, Secretary Bishnu Poudel.
It was after this meet, Kamal Thapa went straight to meet the former King, August 16, 2012.
Interestingly, Kamal met with Chairman Prachanda on August 17, 2012, a day after Thapa met the former Monarch. Thrilling more is that Kamal Thapa talked with Prachanda in the very august presence of caretaker Prime Minister Bhattarai and Maoists leader Agni Prasad Sapkota. It must have been a collective meet.
High placed sources claim that the RPP-Rana and the RPP-Nepal (Thapa) have tentatively agreed to summon the parties general convention well within three months time and declare the party unification.
Both the parties have also agreed on a common agenda: Revival of Nepali Monarchy and a Hindu state.
It should be in this light, Kamal Thapa and Mohan baidya’s fresh joint slogan on preservation of Nepali nationalism has to be looked upon.
This again means that Nepali politics remains in a highly dynamic state. Let’s see what remains in the store for the Nepali population.
Juicy events are taking place though.
