NC objects to government’s decision to prorogue winter session (With video)

KATHMANDU: Nepali Congress commented that the government has violated the parliamentary norms and values by taking a decision to prorogue the winter session of federal Parliament.

Congress’s Chief Whip Ramesh Lekhak said that the party’s decision has been drawn to the decision of the government to prorogue the winter session of the House despite having a sufficient time for the budget session.

Speaking to mediapersons after the Parliamentary Party meeting held on Sunday morning, leader Lekhak said that they obstructed the House proceedings only for two days due to the dictatorial tendencies of the government. He further said that the government should take responsibility of the same.

“It is shameful to say that the Parliament could not function due to the obstruction of the opposition. None of the proceedings of the Parliament were obstructed. The Parliament was obstructed for two days due to the dictatorial tendencies of the government. The Congress strongly condemned this decision,” he said.

The Congress said that the government has been ignoring the demand of the party to form a parliamentary probe committee to investigate fraud charges against Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Home Affairs Rabi Lamichhane.

Lekha said that the Congress will always stand in favour of the cooperative victims.
