Hetaunda, August 17
A Central Working Committee meeting of the Rastriya Prajatantra Party has begun in Hetaunda, the hometown of party’s powerful Chairman Kamal Thapa, on Thursday. The meeting will last for four days.
According to party’s Deputy General Secretary Rajaram Bartaula, the meeting is scheduled to hold discussions on the constitution amendment bill registered in Parliament, local level elections in Province 2 scheduled for September 18, and upcoming federal and provincial elections.
More importantly, the party will discuss its role in the national political scenario after a recent split. Just around a week ago, party’s senior leader Pashupati Shamsher Rana had left the party along with almost half lawmakers and CWC members to form a new party.
Bartaula says the emergency meeting was called to prepare the party’s next strategies after the split.
