House of Representatives (HoR) member Ram Prakash Chaudhary has expressed displeasure on clash of interests among the political parties towards realizing the shared goal of successful implementation of federal democratic republic system.

Recalling the former Speaker Subas Chandra Nembang's expression and stance against holding hostage the parliament and his role in the parliament, Chaudhary said, "Various questions have been raised in regard to our failure to play an appropriate role in the parliament".

Chaudhary, a parliamentarian from the Loktantrik Samajbadi Party, further stressed the need for the Members of Parliament to impart a positive message through deliberations and conduct, knowing their crucial role for law-making.

"The people's representatives should play the role to make the parliament a dignified institution", he noted.

Chaudhary who had entered into politics from Nepal Student's Union (NSU) also had a 30-years' experience in police service of Nepal.

He commented that questions have been raised on parliamentary performance when only one bill related to loan-sharking was enacted in seven months of parliamentary operation after the general election.

Chaudhary, a MP from Sarlahi constituency-1, is now the chief whip of Loktantrik Samajwadi Party (LSP).

He further shared that the prioritized and much-awaited bills such as federal civil service and education are in pipeline for parliamentary deliberations.

The role of parliament and parliamentarians was visible and parliamentary proceedings took strides when the government provided business to the House, he said, adding they however had been raising the issues related to livelihood in the parliament.

In a 'Parliament with RSS', lawmaker Chaudhary viewed giving less priority to the parliamentary or committee meetings as an act to undermine the parliamentary system and people's verdict.

"The parliament has a paramount importance. Our main job is to provide adequate time to the parliament and its committees' works", he said, adding it was obvious to manage the budget through the Constituency Development Fund for development works.

He commented this was the only programme through which equal budgetary allocations were made in electoral constituencies.

He stressed the need to carry out fair investigations into the mega graft cases and book the guilty parties to impart a good message to the people.
