KATHMANDU, May 12: Chairman of Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal, Mr. Kamal Thapa has said that his party is ready to compromise its earlier stance on the revival of Hindu kingdom in order to ensure timely statute delivery from the upcoming 1st general convention.

Thapa has said the upcoming general convention which was slated to start from May 24, will rethink over the party’s earlier stands and will come up with ‘relevant’ ideas to establish lasting peace and development in the country. He said,”Although our identities and
ideologies are different from that of the Rastriya Prajatantra Party, many mistake us for a splinter faction of the same party, since our names are similar,” he further said. “We do not want to share our identity with any other party. We have already come a long way further than RPP.” I hope this issue will be discussed in the session of the convention, Speaking at the interaction program organized by the Reporters’ Club Nepal on Monday.

Thapa also said he would hand over the party’s leadership to the young leaders after four years.

Although his party’s presence in the Constitution Assembly is poor,  his party will continue its struggle for establishing the agendas of constitutional monarchy and Hinduism, thapa said.
