UML stages protest in Parliament
The CPN-UML staged a protest in Parliament on Friday. The main opposition staged a protest regarding the attack on the party's central member and Koshi Province Assembly's Parliamentary Party deputy leader Ram Rana in Ilam district on Thursday. The parliamentarians representing the party stood up from their respective seats in a gesture of protest as soon as the meeting started.

Speaker Devraj Ghimire then allocated time to UML lawmaker Yogesh Bhattarai to air views on the behalf of his party.

Bhattarai asserted that instead of following the decision on the naming of Province 1 as Koshi Province that was made with two-thirds majority through democratic process despite some disapproving voices on March 1, 2023, many untoward activities are occurring lately. He said that "ambushes" were being laid and obstructions created in regard to the naming of the province. He also recalled and said that stones were pelted on UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli and party's parliamentary deputy leader Subash Chandra Nemwang in Jhapa regarding the same. Furthermore, he also recalled the attack on Koshi Province's Deputy Speaker Srijana Danuwar's vehicle in Udayapur. Bhattarai demanded a response from the Home Minister regarding the death of a protester in Biratnagar in connection to the protest.
