Kathmandu, Jan. 5: The Rastriya Prajatantra Party has decided to call on the political parties carrying political beliefs and ideologies in line with the party for unification.
The three-day central committing committee meeting of the party taken place from January 3 to 5 concluded that party division on the eve of the recent elections to the House of Representatives and State Assemblies was the main reason behind party's defeat in the poll, thus agreeing on making initiations for unity among 'nationalist' forces. Party Chair Kamal Thapa unveiled the meeting decisions through a press meet here Friday.
Another finding of the meeting was that the forging of an electoral alliance with the democratic alliance was one of the reasons behind defeat. The party's accusation is that the Nepali Congress (NC) did not provide electoral seats to the party as per the agreement in writing and lack of honest cooperation at the local levels is another reason for the defeat.
The meeting constituted an election review and study committee under the convenorship of Dr Bishnu Bhandari to find out real causes for the party's unexpected defeat in the elections and to submit a report about this along with recommendations useful for future purpose. The committee comprises central committee members Govinda Khaniya, Bhakti Sitaula, Chandreshwor Ray, Dhan Bahadur Budha, Prakash Rimal, Bijay Laxmi Singh and Shyam Shahi as members.
The meeting also agreed to organise the nationwide gathering of district-level party cadres in near future and the central convention of Rastriya Prajantantrik Students Union in the last week of February.
The party also congratulated party general secretary Rajendra Lingden who was elected to the federal parliament from Jhapa constituency-3.
It has also decided to celebrate the 27th Poush, the birth anniversary of unifier of modern Nepal, Prithvi Narayan Shah, as the national unity day. RSS
