Butwal, June 27
The Province 5 Assembly Secretariat on Wednesday has convened the legislative body’s meeting without the participation of main opposition party, Nepali Congress.
Earlier, the Congress lawmakers had complained that the budget statement announced by the provincial government was imbalanced and unilateral. Despite attempts of the ruling side, the party was not satisfied.
Today also, the Congress lawmakers had gathered at the office of their parliamentary party leader Baladev Sharma Pokharel when the Assembly convened its meeting.
Meanwhile, Pokharel accused the ruling parties of undermining values of parliamentary practice by convening the meeting without opposition. He said the government ignored his side’s genuine demand for balanced and proportional budget, adding, it was an authoritarian attitude.
Some lawmakers of the ruling parties have also expressed their dissatisfaction over the budget.
