UML General Convention

The main opposition party, CPN UML, has sought information from the government regarding ordinances related to a political party, delay in cabinet expansion, dismissal of Land-related Problem Resolution Commission, and delay in construction of strategic roads and airports.

National Assembly chairperson Ganesh Prasad Timilsina allocated time for CPN UML lawmakers to put forth their views after they protested standing from their respective seats soon after today's meeting commenced.

On the occasion, CPN UML lawmaker Dil Kumari Thapa blamed that the ordinance issued by the government in order to split the CPN UML has undermined the democracy and party system.

Thapa said, "The government has become failure to expand cabinet even after three months of its formation. It also scrapped the construction of strategic roads put forward by the erstwhile government as well as revoke the Land-related Problem Resolution Commission against the interest of landless squatters."

Saying not only the construction of Bhairahawa and Nijgadh airports has not been able to move ahead, but the pace of overall development of the country has also stalled, she shared, "The government should respond to these issues."

Thapa said that the CPN UML would continue their protest in the House until their demand are addressed and Speaker's move is not corrected, accusing the government of not even having the general information about citizens.

Soon after lawmaker Thapa completed putting forth her views, CPN UML lawmakers stood from their respective seats and started protesting and NA Chair Timilsina urged them to help run the House Business.

After NA Chair's remark, lawmaker Khimlal Devkota objected to the remarks made towards the Speaker in the National Assembly.

Devkota said, "Protests have been staged in the NA targeting the Speaker of the House of Representatives using objectionable words. The Act has prohibits lawmakers from speaking against the Speaker and Chairperson. I strongly condemned such an act. Such words should be removed from the parliamentary record."

Chairman Timilsina informed the House that lawmaker Devkota’s objection was rejected.
