Chairman Pashupati Shumser Rana of Rastriya Prajatantra Party too demanded referendum to revise the decision which declared the country going secular.
Understandably, Rana who is taken as one of the strongest pillars of the republican order along with his partner Surya B. Thapa, kept mum over the decision to declare the country republic.
Poor Nepali leaders.
P. Rana was addressing a program in Parbat district, September 26, 2012.
Rana who shares familial ties with India’s former royalties (the Scindia family and now with Arjun Singh) however, claimed that the state of Nepali nationalism stands weakest in the entire history of the country.
So Mr. Rana too has awakened from deep slumber. Not bad for Nepal’s political health. Better late than never.
He also claimed that Nepal’s Unifier King Prithivi Narayan Shah and King Tribhuwan-who renounced the throne for the sake of democracy in the country, were the national heroes of unified Nepal.
Serving stern warning to Prime Minister Baburam Rana said, “Either he should resign voluntarily or will be ‘kicked’ (ghokre-thyak) out of office through the people’s protest.
Addressing at the same program, senior RPP leader Buddhi Man Tamang criticized major parties for creating disruptions during the religious trip of former King Gyanendra Shah.
“It is sheer stupidity to claim that while he embarks on the religious tips the republican is threatened”, so said Tamang.
Decades long connection counts.
