KATHMANDU: Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP) has decided to field Shobha Gurung, Jeev Lal Puri and Sone Lal Sah in the by-election to be held on April 23.

According to RPP Spokesperson Mohan Shrestha, the party would not forge electoral alliance in any constituency and would rather field its own candidate in all three constituencies.

He informed that Gurung would be the candidate for Tanahu-1, Puri for Chitwan-2 and Sah for Bara-2.

Tanahu-1 became vacant after the then lawmaker Ram Chandra Paudel resigned from the post after getting elected to the post of President. Similarly, the constituency of Bara-2 became vacant after Janata Samajwadi Party’s Ram Sahay Prasad Yadav was elected Vice President.

The constituency of Chitwan-2 became vacant after the Supreme Court (SC) ruled Rastriya Swatantra Party (RSP) Chairman Rabi Lamichhane ineligible to become lawmaker as he did not complete the process to re-acquire his citizenship certificate that became invalid after he acquired US citizenship.

Lamichhane has already reacquired citizenship from the Kathmandu District Administration Office while the Office of the Attorney General decided to not lodge a case against him in the passport controversy.
