KATHMANDU, July 24, (Xinhua) -- Nepal's two former Prime Ministers (PMs) objected to former King Gyanendra Shah's visits to different parts of the country, saying he was trying to disrupt the Constituent Assembly (CA) polls to be held in November this year.

The former King is touring different parts of the country and providing relief packages to flood victims. In Nepal, monarchy was overthrown in 2008 by the Constituent Assembly.

"If I were in power, I would send the former King in Jail," said former PM Baburam Bhattarai at a press conference held at his residence, adding that the former King has been pleading different power centers to revive the monarchy without further elaborating.

Similarly, former PM Madhav Kumar Nepal also criticized the former King's visits to different parts of the country.

"Revival of the monarchy is not possible, I object the former King's recent activities," said Nepal after the meeting with President Ram Baran Yadav on Wednesday.

Nepal's political parties often criticize the former King's activities and statement. Parties fear his activities could create ground for the revival of monarchy.
