House meeting postponed till April 14

Speaker Devraj Ghimire has called a meeting of the House of Representatives for April 14.

After Speaker Ghimire tried to run the meeting of the Parliament today, the main opposition Nepali Congress, Rastriya Prajatantra Party and Loktantrik Samajbadi Party lawmakers chanted slogans and obstructed the meeting.

Following the obstruction, the Speaker announced the termination of today's proceedings and summoned the next meeting for 2 pm on April 14.

The Congress has been demanding the formation of a parliamentary probe committee to investigate cooperative fraud charges against Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Home Affairs Rabi Lamichhane.

The party has been saying that it would not allow the House to proceed with its business until the parliamentary probe committee is formed.
