Rashtriya Prajatantra Party (RPP) led by Kamal Thapa has withdrawn its support to the Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba-led government. This is reportedly a reaction to Thapa led RPP against the present government which is blamed for a split of his party.
RPP’s leader Thapa, who was the minister of Foreign Affair accusing Madheshi agitation as an anti-national movement supported by foreign power, blamed the government for its apathy to address the Madhesh issue.
Thapa, who voted for present secular constitution and did not resign as a deputy prime minister when the government declined to declare national unity day and Prithvi Jayanti, took a decision to roll back its support to the government for its ignorance to the RPP proposal to mark the national unity day to recognize the contributions of nation builder Prithvi Narayan Shah.
At a press conference organized here on Tuesday, RPP Chairperson Kamal Thapa claimed that the force reluctant to see the uprising of nationalist and pro-Hindu force has split the party.
