DANG — Chairman of the Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal, Kamal Thapa, has said that the party’s movement would not stop until the nation was declared a Hindu state along with religious freedom.
Addressing the mid-western-level Hindu Awareness Assembly organised by RPP-Nepal in Tulsipur on Saturday, Chairman Thapa, who is also the Deputy Prime Minister of incumbent government, said the awareness assembly was one form of the movement.
Thapa said that the party was compelled to accept the constitution with secularism and added that they would continue the movement until the declaration of the Hindu state.
He said, “We accepted the new constitution along with secular nation out of compulsion after our all attempts of declaring the country as the Hindu nation through the new constitution went in vain.”
The RPP-Nepal Chairman claimed that they would create an environment to declare the Hindu state by amending the new constitution under the pressure of the people.

BHIMDUTTANAGAR — Locals who were protesting against the rape and murder of Nirmala Panta of Kanchanpur’s Bhimdatta Municipality, have enforced shutdown in Bhimduttanagar Bazaar on Tuesday, protesting police’s failure to reveal facts behind the murder of 13-year-old girl and parading wrong suspect on Monday.

Locals have shut down the market area stating that police were not being able to make public the true murderer(s) as they are not convinced by the findings of police citing that Bista was mentally unsound, according to the District Police Office.
Transportation has also been halted.
Bista, a resident of Khanna Chauraha area in Bhimdutta Municipality-19, was apprehended near the scene of crime on Sunday, according to police.
Police making public the wrong suspect has infuriated the locals and fueled the protest.
The agitators including various civil society organisations and human rights defenders have been picketing the District Administration Office and staging rally on the street mounting pressure on the police to reveal the facts behind the heinous crime.
Meanwhile, it had been learnt that police have fired rounds of teargas shells to contain the agitated mob.
