Kathmandu, July 30

Nepali Congress president Sher Bahadur Deuba was involved in a fierce argument with his own party’s lawmaker Jeep Chhiring Lama during a meeting of a House committee on Tuesday.

While the Development and Technology Committee of Parliament was discussing provisions in the Advertising Bill, Deuba opposed Lama after he said the advertising regulatory board should have inclusive participation of all communities.

“Do you think being inclusive is enough?” the former prime minister questioned his party’s lawmaker, “Doesn’t it have to be easy to work with?” He also commented that what Lama said during the meeting was his personal opinion, and it would not represent the party.

Deuba was of the view that the board should not include too many people in the name of being inclusive.┬áLama rebutted Deuba’s argument at least twice before his party president walked out of the meeting.┬áTop politicians of the country rarely take part in parliamentary committee meetings, and even when they do, they do not stay till the end.
