The top leaders of all the political parties representing the Federal Parliament have been urged to attend the meeting. The parliament has not been able to take up the regular agenda of the meeting due to the obstruction by the main opposition party, the CPN UML, since the start of the current session of the parliament. The meeting could not enter the regular business today as well due to the main opposition's obstruction of the House proceedings.

The Speaker held discussions with today with UML Chief Whip Bishal Bhattarai, Whip Shanta Chaudhary, and MP Khaga Raj Adhikari regarding the resumption of the parliament's business. However, the meeting was inconclusive. Although the meeting of the House of Representatives, the Lower House of the Federal Parliament, started after being suspended for 15 minutes, it could not proceed due to the obstruction by the UML MPs.

The meeting has been postponed till September 14. The UML has been obstructing the House saying the MPs elected from the UML ticket against whom it had recommended action have been allowed to attend the House meetings.
