Cooperative fraud case: Ruling parties to bring middle-path proposal (With video)

KATHMANDU: A meeting of the task force formed to prepare terms of reference (ToR) of the parliamentary probe committee to investigate cooperative fraud scam ended without any specific decision.

After the meeting, CPN-UML Chief Whip Mahesh Bartaula said that an agreement has been reached to resolve the problems on consensus and end the House impasse.

“The meeting entered the topic, but has not made a concrete decision. The House will function. The proceedings in the Parliament will not create problems here,” he said.

Leader Bartaula informed that the meeting of the task force will be held again after the Parliament meeting.

Rastriya Swatantra Party leader Shishir Khanal said that they are looking for a middle path.

“I put my views in the meeting that we do not need to stay in the task force if our presence makes it difficult to prepare the ToR,” Khanal said, adding, “We are for not forming the parliamentary probe committee by targeting a single person. It will set a bad precedent.”

Nepali Congress Deputy General Secretary said that they are firm on their stance of forming a parliamentary probe committee to investigate Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Rabi Lamichhane.

He said that they would not allow the House to function until the committee is formed.
