The RPP-Nepal has decided to register a proposal to amend constitution to replace secularism by Hindu state in the spirit.
Revealing the decision at the end party’s three-day Central Working Committee meeting in Birgunj on Saturday, the fourth largest party in the Legislature-Parliament on Sunday said “in between the full religious freedom and spirit of all religions are equal”, it would table a proposal in Parliament to restore Nepal as a Hindu state at appropriate time.
If that proposal is rejected, the party will go for a nationwide struggle to demand for a referendum on restoring Nepal as a Hindu state, the RPP-N said in a statement.
The RPP-N, a coalition partner in the KP Sharma Oli-led government, has also expressed its dissatisfaction over its performance. “The meeting has expressed serious concern of the government for not doing anything concrete for the people. The party has demanded immediate measures to control the rising inflation, ease supply of fuel, maintain law and order, curb on black marketeering, corruption.
It has also drawn government’s attention to facilitate earthquake victims for rebuilding their quake-ravaged houses and address the demands of the Tarai/Madhes at the earliest.
The statement issued by party’s Joint Spokesperson Mohan Shrestha also said the RPP-N also aims to become a strong nationalist and Democratic Party and will carry on talks with likeminded parties and groups.
Referring to the problem in Tarai/Madhes as political, the party has said that it should be resolved through talks and consensus.
“Despite a low representation of the Madhes-based parties in Parliament, it will have a major impact on nation’s future,” the statement read, warning that any effort to muzzle the Madesh voice will be a big mistake.
