Nepali top actress Rekha Thapa has formally entered RPP (Rastriya Prajatantra Party) in an event held in Kathmandu on December 12, 2016. The president of RPP Kamal Thapa welcomed the top actress in the Nepali movie industry in the special event held in a restaurant. Video report:
I prepared a video before she was formally given the membership:
Rekha Thapa lied
Now, at the time of this writing, the event is over and Rekha Thapa has told the reason of her choice. She also claimed that she was never a member of Maoist party. Talking in the ceremony she told that she wants to die under the national flag and the flag of RPP.
In the event, Rekha Thapa claimed that she had never taken the membership of CPN Maoist party. That is an outright lie because:
She was formally conferred a member of the party by Prachanda and Baburam (see the video above).
The party had also issued the ticket for her participation in the election. No party issues a letter to a non-member. The ticket was rendered useless when it was found that Rekha had failed to register her name in the voter’s list.
The event was held at Indreni Foodland. The president of the party, Kamal Thapa handed over the party entry letter and welcomed her in the party with a flower garland. Other party members including Komal Oli welcomed Rekha in the party.
Talking in the event, she choose the party because of her being a Hindu woman. She told, “RPP is the first and the last political party.”
