Gyanendra's statement on monarchy a daydream
Most Nepali leaders have described a recent statement by former Nepal monarch King Gyanendra that "the monarchy hasn't completely ended" as a daydream.
Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal said on Thursday: "It is only a day dream to say that the monarchy still exists in the country. So, the meeting did not discuss about his remarks.
Tarai Madhes Loktantrik Party (TMLP) Chairman Mahantha Thakur expressed surprise over the former king's remark and joked that the former king might have made such remarks in delusion.
Meanwhile, UCPN (Maoist) Chairman Narayan Kaji Shrestha claimed that the latest statement by former King Gyanendra has made it clear that counter revolutionaries are conspiring in the country.
