Nepal nationwide protests to call for restoration of monarchy

Home office warns force may be used, as right-wing party pushes for Hindu state

KATHMANDU -- Nepal's right-wing Rastriya Prajatantra Party, royalist groups and pro-monarchy citizens are set to ratchet up demonstrations calling for the restoration of the monarchy and a Hindu state.

The RPP will launch a movement for the restoration of the monarchy from the southern city of Hetauda on Friday, to be followed on Saturday by rallies in another southern city, Jhapa, and the capital, Kathmandu. Around 10,000 royalists are expected at the Kathmandu demonstration.
