NC objects to government's decision to prorogue House session

2024 Apr 14, 14:10,

The main opposition party Nepali Congress has objected to the government's decision to end the current session of the Federal Parliament. The meeting of the Congress Parliamentary Party held today has said that serious attention has been drawn to the recommendation made by the government to end the current budget session while there is enough time for the budget session.

While sharing the decision of the meeting, chief whip Ramesh Lekhak said that this decision of the government is undemocratic and against the parliamentary values and practice.

According to him, the Congress has criticized and condemned the government's decision. "In the House, all the opposition parties have been raising the issue of misappropriation of the funds of the cooperatives. The minister in the government was involved in the misappropriation of the funds of the cooperatives, so they were demanding the formation of a parliamentary investigation committee to ensure a fair and independent investigation," he said, adding that their demand has been ignored.

"The ruling party is alleging that the House was blocked because of the opposition party. It is merely an allegation," he said, adding that the Congress has been raising the issue of Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Rabi Lamichhane's involvement in the misappropriation of the cooperative's funds with facts and evidence. Lekhak said that the government was not serious about it and the House was suspended for a few days, so the government itself should take responsibility for it.

This meeting of the Congress Parliamentary Party has committed to stand more firmly for an independent, fair and credible investigation on the matter of defrauding the funds of the cooperative, informed the chief whip.

The meeting also concluded that since the government could not give enough time to the House, the necessary laws regarding the implementation of the Constitution and federalism and public concerns could not be passed in this session.
