“The speech where then King Gyanendra Shah had discussed about the restoration of parliament was prepared by then Nepali Congress President Girija Perasad Koirala and myself. We had agreed to resurrect the parliament. But, there is no statement of bringing back monarchy,” said Nepal.
Addressing a program at Bharatpur of Chitwan district on Saturday, Nepal challenged former King Gyanendra Shah to show the evidence for any statement for restoring monarchy. Nepal also warned Shah not to speak nonsense in front of the public.
“Girija Koirala has passed away but I am still here. If he has any proof about it I challenge him to show it. He might have thought that I would not speak as Koirala is no more. But I refuse to give in,” said Nepal.
Nepal reiterated that monarchy can never be restored in the nation. “History will not repeat itself. Gyanendra Shah is daydreaming about getting back to power. We do not need his guidance, President Ram Baran Yadav’s leadership is enough,” Nepal said.
Nepal further claimed that Gyanendra Shah got the opportunity to play with the sentiments of the people because of the worthlessness of Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai and his government. “Bhattarai has no morality to be in the position,” said Nepal.
