Kathmandu, May 15
The main opposition party in the Federal Parliament has warned of a strong protest if the government and the legislative move forward the discussion on controversial Media Council Bill.
A meeting of the Nepali Congress parliamentary party chaired by the party chief and former prime minister Sher Bahadur Deuba on Wednesday decided to resort to streets and oppose the bill in Parliament if the government forwarded the discussion.
Likewise, the party also demanded that the government put on hold discussions on National Human Rights Commission Bill and National Defence Council Bill as they are also controversial.
“All three bills are against the constitution. The government should withdraw them,” the party’s chief whip Bal Krishna Khand told journalists after the meeting.
“If the bills are forwarded forcefully, the party will mobilise its force against them.”
