RPP-N won’t discuss state religion with Modi: Thapa
Jul 29, 2014-
Chairman of Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal (RPP-N) Kamal Thapa has said his party will not be discussing Nepal’s religion and monarchy with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is scheduled to arrive in Kathmandu on August 3 for a two-day official visit.
Thapa said on Tuesday that the topics of state religion, monarchy, secularism, and republic are Nepal’s internal affairs which should solely be deicded by the Nepali people and parties. “We should prioritise economic agendas rather than such political issues,” he said.
The RPP-N chairman said the country should take advantage from the visit of Indian prime minister, noting that the Indian government has put Nepal in its high priority.
“Indian Prime Minister Modi has a clear vision of Nepal. We should, therefore, prepare ourselves accordingly,” he said.
Thapa also criticised the government and the major political parties for not doing enough homework to chalk out the agendas to discuss with the Indian prime minister. “The government should have at least consulted with all the parties before setting the agendas,” he said.
