The Federal Parliament, Impeachment Recommendation Committee has started recording statements from suspended Chief Justice Cholendra Shumsher JB Rana on the second day today. The committee had started taking statements from Rana on Wednesday. It has set 43 questions for this purpose. Only four questions were covered on the first day.

The suspended Chief Justice, in course of giving his statement, said that he was not to be blamed but all were unilaterally accusing him.

Whether or not the impeachment against Rana who is under suspension for more than six months would be proved should have been concluded within three months, but discussions on the issue have been started after a long time.

A meeting of the committee held on August 24 had decided to call the suspended chief justice for recording his statement.

Ninety-eight lawmakers from the House of Representatives had registered an impeachment proposal against Rana on February 13.

Although the parliament formed the Impeachment Recommendation Committee at that time, its first meeting was held on August 17.

Nepal Bar Association and the Supreme Court Bar Association had submitted a 34-point letter to the committee, in support of the impeachment against Rana. The letter incorporates the reason and basis for registering impeachment.
