Despite the rising cases of COVID patients, the State Affairs and Good Governance Committee of House of Representatives (HoR) has announced to continue with its monitoring activities in areas that have direct concerns with citizens' life.

The committee's chair, Shashi Shrestha, said that the meeting of the committee has decided to carry out monitoring even in the time of rising coronavirus infections for the effectiveness of the programmes unveiled to control the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the issue of good governance and other areas that have direct impact on public life.

"We cannot remain aloof from the complex situation of the present time. By applying necessary protocols, we need to make people feel about the presence of their guardians," Shrestha said while sharing the conclusion of the meeting.

According to her, the committee will monitor the issues of artificial shortage of goods, sale of date-expired goods, black-marketing, and others during the pandemic.

She shared that the monitoring this time will be basically focused on Kathmandu Valley and adjoining regions.

During the monitoring, a limited number of people's representatives will participate and all the health protocols will be followed.

A sub-committee formed to study the reports of the Election Commission of Nepal and Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) also submitted its study report in the meeting.

The committee members have been given a week's time to provide their recommendations after holding discussions over the report.
