For this, a talks team was also been formed. Of late, Thapa has decided to end talks with RPP (Democratic) until the splinter party will make clear on its stance on Hindu nation and monarchy.
According to reports appeared in different newspapers, after Sunil Thapa, general secretary of the RPP (Democratic) issued a statement saying that there was the possibility of unification between RPP and RPP (Democratic) if RPP would back republicanism and secularism, then after the unification process was ended.
