KATHMANDU: Tensions are rising within the Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP) as it grapples with internal divisions over campaigner Durga Prasai’s upcoming Kathmandu-centric campaign scheduled for November 23.

RPP Chairman Rajendra Lingden believes that Prasai’s campaign lacks a declared agenda for the restoration of the monarchy.

However, RPP senior leader, Dr. Prakash Chandra Lohani, in a statement, has expressed support for Prasai, calling for moral backing and cooperation from RPP members.

Dr. Lohani said, “The sympathy and support of the RPP workers come naturally in any public campaign carried out by anyone according to the guidelines and agenda passed by the RPP unity convention.”

He urged that the public demonstration on November 23 should receive the full moral support and cooperation of the party.

RPP’s Senior Vice Chairman, Rabindra Mishra, echoed Dr. Lohani’s sentiments, expressing support for Prasai’s campaign through social media.

Mishra highlighted the need for unity within the royalist faction, urging members to collaborate for common goals.

However, despite the public endorsements from these senior leaders, the RPP has yet to officially declare its stance on Prasai’s program.

RPP Chairman Lingden, who is currently in his home district, Jhapa to prepare for an event with former King Gyanendra, has yet to make any official position regarding Prasai’s November 23 program.

Lingden and other RPP leaders have remained silent, revealing a potential rift within the party.

RPP Chairman Lingden, appears skeptical of Prasai’s motives as they have engaged in public verbal sparring in the past, with Prasai making derogatory remarks about Lingden at an event attended by the former king in Jhapa.

Lingden, in turn, has questioned the legitimacy of Prasai’s campaign, stating, “Do you believe that a bank fraud will reinstate the institution of monarchy?”

Lingden believes that Prasai’s campaign lacks a declared agenda for the restoration of the monarchy.
