Lower House informed of endorsement of bills by Upper House

07/10/2019

Kathmandu, July 10: A meeting of the House of Representatives, the lower house of the Federal Parliament, today was informed of the passage of four various bills by the National Assembly, the upper house. The meeting of the lower house was marred by protests from lawmakers of the main opposition party, Nepali Congress, and the Rastriya Janata Party (RJP). The meeting which had been called for 1 pm had commenced only after 2.30 pm, one and half hours late. Lawmakers from the Nepali Congress and RJP stood up in protest soon after Speaker Krishna Bahadur Mahara announced the commencement of the parliamentary proceedings. The Speaker time and again requested the protesting lawmakers to take their seats and allow the proceedings to move ahead, but to no avail. After this, the Speaker had gone ahead with the house session. The protesting parliamentarians, however, surrounded the 'well' in front of the Speaker and chanted slogans calling for protection of human rights. The opposition party lawmakers have been protesting, saying the reply furnished by Home Minister Ram Bahadur Thapa regarding the Sarlahi incident in the House of Representatives' meeting on Tuesday was not satisfactory. Parliament Secretariat secretary Gopalinath Yogi informed the meeting that the National Assembly has passed the Appropriation Bill, 2076; the Finance Bill, 2076, the Bill on Mobilizing National Loan, 2076 and the Loan and Guarantee (Twenty third amendment) Bill, 2076. These bills had originated in the lower house and forwarded to the upper house. The House of Representatives will next meet on July 15 at 1pm. RSS
