Kathmandu, 12 December. The royalists held a motorcycle rally in Dhangadhi on December 19 to give a glimpse of the people's movement.

Though the rally was called under the guise of Far-Western Independent Patriotic Civil Society, the entire management was done by the Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP), which has been advocating for the Hindu Nation and the monarchy. Not only royalists but also supporters of the ruling CPN (Maoist) and the opposition Congress were seen at the rally.

The organizers have claimed that not only the supporters of the CPN (Maoist) and the Nepali Congress but also the cadres participated in the rally. "There was more participation than expected, we just called, the people came to the streets spontaneously. Other party cadres also participated, 'said Rabindra Karki, coordinator of the organizing society.

Karki claims that more than 7,000 people participated in the rally held from Dhangadhi-Attaria-Dhangadhi. He said that this participation has confirmed the failure of the current system. "The rally has confirmed the failure of the democratic system and the growing disillusionment of the people with the system itself," Karki said. According to the police, there are between 2,000 and 2,200 participants in the rally. District Police Chief SP Anup shamsher Jabra said that advance notice of the rally had been given.
RPP central members Chhatra Shahi, Lalit Negi and other local leaders and activists were involved in the preparations for the rally. Coordinator Karki himself is the state president of the RPP-affiliated Youth Front. However, Shahi said that he did not carry the party's flag to make it easier for independent citizens and other party members to participate. "We worked in the background with independent projects."Shahi, who coordinated the campaign for the rally, said, "Friends from other parties said we would go if your party's flag was not used."

Shahi said that the turnout was higher than expected due to disgust towards the activities of the government and political parties. ‘This is dissatisfaction with the irresponsible actions and corruption of the parties. That is why supporters of other parties also came to the rally, 'Shahi said,' Corruption has become uncontrollable, people are starting to reach the mentality that one king is better than hundreds of kings in the country.


The rally carried the national flag and chanted slogans for the restoration of the Hindu nation and monarchy. People from urban and rural areas of Kailali and Kanchanpur had come to participate in the rally. Committees and leaders of RPP up to the villages were mobilized to increase public participation

Central member Shahi said that RPP leaders and cadres from some hilly districts also participated in the rally. The organizers also provided fuel for some participants. Coordinator Karki said that they had spent only around Rs. 200,000 as the participation of their respective places was managed by the local committee.

Congress Kailali Vice President Prakash Bahadur Bam said that the government and the political parties were not able to work as per the expectations of the people. "The disillusionment is compounded by the fact that what was supposed to happen in a democracy could not happen, rather than a democratic system. It is natural to express disgust, 'he said.
