2021 Sep 03, 9:05, Kathmandu
Lawyers representing Speaker of the House of Representatives, Agni Prasad Sapkota, have started placing their arguments before the constitutional bench of the Supreme Court, in Kathmandu, on July 4, 2021.

Bagmati Province Assemblymember of the Nepali Congress, Narottam Vaidya, has filed a writ petition at Supreme Court, demanding the postponement of the 14th general convention of the party considering the threat of COVID-19.

"Coronavirus is spread globally because of gathering and fairs. Control and prevention of the coronavirus is the major responsibility at present. So, NC's general convention can be held after the control of the coronavirus," Vaidya told RSS. He stressed the need of saving people's lives.

Vaidya further argued in the writ that there would not be the issue of legitimacy if the general convention is not held right now. The hearing on the writ is scheduled for Sunday.

The ruling Nepali Congress has scheduled its general convention from November 25-29. For this, the ward level convention is beginning from tomorrow.
