Kathmandu, July 31
The meeting of the House of Representatives called for Monday has been adjourned.
This comes after the main opposition party UML demanded a formation of a high-level investigation committee to investigate the 100 kg gold smuggling case.
The ruling party does not want to form a committee right now.
The UML on July 26 obstructed the house meeting demanding the government to form a high-level investigation committee.
Sources in the Speaker’s Secretariat said that after the UML took the same stand on Monday, Speaker Devraj Ghimire adjourned the meeting of the House of Representatives until 1 pm on Tuesday at the request of the government.
Earlier on Monday morning, top leaders of the Nepali Congress, UML and Maoist Center sat for a discussion.
