 The main opposition party, Nepali Congress (NC), is to allow the presentation of the government's policies and programmes for the upcoming fiscal year in the Federal Parliament today.

The main opposition party had been obstructing the proceedings of the House of Representatives before this calling for forming a parliamentary committee for conducting impartial investigation into the cooperative scandal.

A meeting of the Nepali Congress Parliamentary Party today decided to allow President Ramchandra Paudel to present the government's policies and programmes for the next fiscal year in the joint sitting of the Federal Parliament today, the NC Chief Whip Ramesh Lekhak said.

President Paudel is scheduled to present the policies and programmes in the Federal Parliament's joint meeting at 3.00pm today.

The NC has however stated that it will not allow running the parliament proceedings in the discussions following the agenda of presenting the policies and programmes until the parliamentary investigation committee is formed.

The Nepali Congress has been demanding for forming a parliamentary committee for carrying out a fair investigation alleging that Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Rabi Lamichhane's name was also linked to the misappropriation of the cooperatives' funds.
