RPP clash with police

KATHMANDU, March 20: Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP) cadres clashed with police today afternoon while protesting against the EC’s decision to remove the term ‘Hindu State’ and ‘Constitutional Monarchy’ from the party statue.

Dozens were injured including RPP’s former President Pashupati Shumser Rana when police started baton charging the demonstrators as the latter moved towards the office of Election Commission at Kantipath shouting slogans and demanding the restoration of terms from the party statue. The police even lobbed teargas canisters to disperse the crowd.

The EC on March 17 had decided to remove the term ‘Hindu State’ and ‘Constitutional Monarchy’ from the RPP’s statue stating that the terms were contradictory to the spirit of constitution.
