Doti, November 9

CPN-Mashal General Secretary Mohan Bikram Singh says the monarchy can be revived if the Nepali Congress and other constituents of its alliance win upcoming House of Representatives elections.

Speaking at a function in Doti district of far-western Nepal today, Singh said a large section within the Congress wanted to revive democracy and other parties in its alliance also supported the agenda. “Therefore, the Congress winning the elections means democracy is in danger.”

Singh was in Doti to address the function organised by his party’s legal front, Rastiya Janamorcha, in the run-up to upcoming elections.

The veteran leftist explained that the Congress would amend the constitution in partnership with Madhesh-centric parties in favour of India and that would keep our nationalism in jeopardy. “The Congress wants to revive the Hindu nation status and reinstate the king as the patrol of Hindu state,” he said, “Therefore, we did not partner with this party in the polls.”

He also accused the Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba of losing a political character and love for nation. “It has already been proved that he can do anything for his vested interests.”
