KATHMANDU: Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP) Chairman Pashupati Shamsher Jung Bahadur Rana has accused political parties claiming to be “carriers of change” of jeopardizing the constitution and democracy.
In his Buddha Jayanti message on Wednesday, RPP Chairman Rana expressed concern about the people’s suffering as a result of poor governance and a shambolic health system, and alleged that the selfishness and arbitrariness of the so-called bearer of change jeopardized democracy and the Constitution.
RPP Chairman Rana urged everyone to work together to preserve Nepal’s pride and unity.
He claimed that the very foundations of the 2005 12-point agreement were incorrect, and that the country’s political system should be restored to its pre-April 24, 2006 state.
RPP Chair Rana reiterated the need to return to the April 24 status, implying that political developments since then have been tumultuous.
“The selfishness and arbitrariness of the so-called carriers of change have shattered people’s faith in the state mechanism,” he said in a congratulatory message on the occasion of Buddha Jayanti, Baba Gorakhnath Jayanti, and Ubouli on Wednesday, adding, “Minor corrections on the systems do not work.” As a result, it is necessary to return to Baishakh 11 (April 24) and find a long-term solution beginning with the 12-point agreement.
