PM Dahal, NC President Deuba discuss House obstruction

Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal held a meeting with Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba in his bid to end the current House deadlock created by the Congress.

Prime Minister Dahal had reached Budhanilkantha to urge Deuba to end the Parliament impasse, the Prime Minister’s Secretariat informed.

It has been said that they discussed contemporary political issues for around 40 minutes.

Senior leaders of the major political parties are holding a meeting to finalize the terms of reference (ToR) of the parliamentary probe committee.

The NC has long been obstructing the parliamentary proceedings, alleging the involvement of Deputy Prime Minister Lamichhane in the fraud and demanding the formation of a parliamentary committee to ensure a fair investigation into the case whereas the CPN-UML and RSP in particular have made it clear that an individual-centric probe is simply unacceptable.

The government is preparing to endorse the government’s policies and programs in the Parliament meeting today.

Congress lawmakers, however, have been saying that they would allow the House to function until the parliamentary probe committee is formed.

The main opposition is organizing a mass demonstration today to mount pressure on the government.
