The Federal Parliament Secretariat has received six proposals that have sought amendments to the government’s annual policy and programme.

The House of Representatives will begin discussions on the document on Sunday, according to the Secretariat. It will continue for a next few days.

The Secretariat has called a meeting for the House for 11 am today.

Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli respond to comments raised during the discussion before endorsing the document.

The government will prepare the annual budget statement based on the annual policy and prorgramme.
