Butwal, June 19
The main opposition Nepali Congress has agreed to let the Province 5 Assembly resume its business after a day of obstruction.
Earlier, the party had boycotted the legislative activity yesterday expressing its dissatisfaction over the budget announced by the provincial government. Following that, Provincial Speaker Purna Bahadur Gharti had postponed the meeting.
In a bid to solve the problem, Chief Minister Shankar Pokhrel held a meeting with Congress leaders in Butwal today. During the meeting, the Chief Minister agreed to address ‘genuine’ demands of the party, hence it agreed to join the House, according to Congress parliamentary leader Baladev Sharma Pokharel.
The next Assembly meeting has been scheduled for 1 pm today.
