Efforts underway to end House deadlock

KATHMANDU: A meeting of the House of Representatives scheduled for 11 am has been postponed for 4 pm today.

The meeting was postponed after Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal requested Speaker Devraj Ghimire to put off the meeting as initiatives were underway to forge consensus with the Nepali Congress, the main opposition party, to lift House obstructions, said Ghimire’s Press Coordinator Shekhar Adhikari.

The NC has been obstructing the parliament proceedings, demanding formation of a parliamentary committee for impartial investigation on cooperative fraud scam.

The Prime Minister said that an environment to allow Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister, Rabi Lamichhane, to speak in today’s meeting is being created.

Speaker Ghimire held discussions with the chief whips and the whips of major political parties as well as with the Minister for Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs at federal parliament building, New Baneshwor, to end deadlock.
