CPN-UML agrees to end parliament obstruction

KATHMANDU: The main opposition CPN-UML has agreed to end the obstruction in the parliament.

A meeting was held earlier today between the Prime Minister, CPN (Maoist Centre) Chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal, Nepali Congress (NC) President Sher Bahadur Deuba, and CPN-UML Chair KP Sharma Oli, where the UML agreed to end the parliamentary obstruction.

After the meeting of the top leaders of the three parties, a parliamentary party meeting of the UML decided to hear PM Dahal’s clarification in the parliament today and end the house obstruction, said Padam Giri, Chief Whip of the UML parliamentary party.

Prime Minister Dahal will address the Parliament today in order to provide clarification regarding his statement.

During a book release event of businessman Pritam Singh, Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal made a statement that Singh had visited Delhi multiple times with the intention of making him the Prime Minister.

As a result, the CPN-UML along with other opposition parties has been obstructing the parliament, objecting to PM Dahal’s statement.

Earlier on Sunday, the three leaders had held a meeting to end the obstruction. They had reached an agreement in which Prime Minister Dahal would provide clarification in the House, and the UML end the obstruction. However, the agreement allegedly collapsed due to Oli’s opposition to a press statement released by the secretariat of the prime minister on July 6.

The prime minister’s secretariat said that PM Dahal is also preparing to clarify about the press statement in his address to Parliament today.
