Speaker Ghimire meets PM Dahal to discuss House deadlock

Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal and Speaker Devraj Ghimire held a meeting on Wednesday.

Speaker Ghimire had reached the Prime Minister’s residence in Baluwatar to discuss the issue of House deadlock.

The Speaker’s press advisor Shekhar Adhikari said that Speaker Ghimire has taken the issue of not being able to endorse a motion of expressing gratitude to President Ram Chandra Pauel for presenting the government’s policies and programs due to the obstruction of the Nepali Congress in a serious way.

He said that the government should take initiatives to make the Parliament effective.

Speaker Ghimire said that it would be shameful if the budget gets affected due to the lack of consensus among the political parties.

“The House business has been affected due to lack of agreement among the political parties. This is not good,” he said, adding, “Hope, there will not be a constitutional crisis.”

In response, Prime Minister Dahal said that the government is committed to resolve the problems of cooperatives, saying that the issue will be sorted out soon after holding a discussion with the ruling and opposition parties.

The main opposition Nepali Congress has been obstructing the Parliament demanding formation of a parliamentary committee to investigate fraud charges against Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Rabi Lamichhane.
