Ex-king, parties had a deal: Thapa
Mar 3, 2015-
Thapa also defended Shah’s statement issued on the occasion of Democracy Day, reminding the parties to abide by the agreement that was reached between him and the political parties. Speaking at an interaction in the Capital on Tuesday, the RPP-N chairman said that the ex-king’s statement was natural and that the country will find a way out if the parties agree to honour the deal made with the country’s last monarch. “The parties had agreed to retain constitutional monarchy while ending the protest on April 24, 2006,” Thapa said.
He also claimed that bilateral and trilateral meetings could not end the ongoing political deadlock. The parties represented in the Constituent Assembly should instead sit together to find a solution, he added.
