KATHMANDU: The relentless campaign led by anti-republican campaigner and coordinator of “Maha Abhiyan”, Durga Prasai, has sent shockwaves through the major political parties.

Prasai’s campaign has not only become a formidable challenge for existing political forces but has also prompted reflection on their relevance and efficacy.

As newer political parties surface, Prasai’s campaign forces major political parties to confront the question of their legitimacy.

The fervent Prasai, determined to persist until a systemic change is achieved, showcased their resolve in a spirited demonstration in Balkhu on Thursday.

Despite Prasai’s announcement to continue the protest, the state has placed him under what has been dubbed “house arrest”, actively detaining supporters gathering at the designated demonstration site in Tinkune.

However, sources close to him say that Prasai remains resolute, confirming that the campaign will continue into the coming days.

It may be noted that Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal “Prachanda” recently expressed concerns about the resurgence of elements previously relegated to the annals of history.

“This achievement was not secured through minor tribulations, sacrifices, and struggles,” PM Dahal, who is also the Chairman of Maoist Center, said recently at a program in Kathmandu.

PM Dahal also warned against the looming threat of absolutist elements attempting a comeback, asserting that the forces advocating for monarchy will not succeed.

CPN-UML Chairman KP Oli, too, branded Prasai as “foolish and aimless individual”.

“I don’t understand why they (Prasai’s supporters) rallied. I even do not know what their demands are,” he said at a program in Kahtmandu.

UML Chairman Oli also criticized the Dahal-led government for remaining obstinate.

He also leveled the institution of monarchy as a ‘dead ghost,’ asserting that the people discarded it as obsolete, and it holds no potential for resurgence.

Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP) Chairman Rajendra Lingden, meanwhile, has remained busy for the past couple of days to welcome the former king in Jhapa.
