KATHMANDU: Chairman of Rastriya Prajatantra Party Nepal Kamal Thapa has announced that collaboration with the royalists and CPN-Maoist is likely if the upcoming CA election was postponed.

Speaking at an interaction organized by the Reporters Club today, Thapa said the upcoming election will be postponed due to four-party alliance not from the CPN-Maoist.

“In such situation, king (former king), Maoists and all nationalist forces will take to streets. None can prevent that,” he added.
Club’s chairman Rishi Dhamala presided over the program.

On the occasion, Thapa also revealed that he has held frequent talks with CPN-Maoist Chairman Mohan Baidhya, secretaries Netra Bikram Chand and Dev Gurung and they were in regular touch even today.

Thapa also hailed the statement of CPN-Maoist leaders’ that collaboration with nationalist forces was needed when the nationality was at risk.

He also hinted at the talks with the former king and CPN-Maoist leaders to that end.

“The statement of Mohan Baidhya to forge alliance with the former king is relevant. This has signalled political polarization,” Kamal Thapa added.

He also added that CPN-Maoist and royalists can thwart the risk at nationality.

During the program, Thapa also claimed that former prime minister Dr Baburam Bhattarai is the first person to propose alliance with the Maoists and monarchy.

Bhattarai floated such proposal at a meeting in the house of former mayor of Nepalgunj Municipality Dhabal Shumsher Rana and Dr Bhattarai also expressed his readiness to accept Gyanendra Shah as the first president or powerless king, Thapa claimed.
