On the same day that RPP Humla got new leadership from the district convention, the party has taken out a torch rally against the MCC which is about to get approval from the parliament. Concluding that the MCC was against the national interest, RPP staged a torch rally in protest.
The newly elected chairperson of RPP-Humla Bikas Mahat said that the torch rally was taken out as the MCC was not in the interest of the state.
The protesters chanted slogans such as "Dismiss MCC", "Hindu state is alive", "Monarchy is alive", "State cannot be sold".
The rally had marched around Simkot Bazaar. Due to the rain, the protestors faced difficulty in lighting the torch.
