The fourth largest party in the Constituent Assembly (CA), Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal (RPP-N) has demanded referendum on secularism, republicanism and federalism within three months.
Issuing a press statement on Wednesday, the party said the disputes should be settled with people's mandate in the referendum by mid-April reports THT online.
The party has held four major political forces – Nepali Congress, CP-UML, UCPN-Maoist and United Democratic Madhesi Front – responsible for the CA's failure to promulgate the constitution by January 22.
A handful of leaders of major parties wanted to decide on key issues of the constitution outside CA and use the constitution writing body but as a rubber stamp to approve those decisions, RPP-N spokesperson Bishnu Bhattarai said in the statement.
Meanwhile, the party also announced a 'people's struggle' for reinstatement of the Hindu state in the new constitution.
The demonstration programmes include rallies and assemblies in all district headquarters, sit-in and gherao at the CA building and submission of signatures to CA Chair demanding declaration of the Hindu state.
A mobilisation committee has been formed in the leadership of party Chair Kamal Thapa, according to Bhattarai.
