Kathmandu, July 12
The Rastriya Prajatantra Party has demanded that four parties, which are represented in the Federal Parliament but have not got the status of national party, be included in the Parliamentary Hearing Special Committee.
The 15-member Committee, consisting three members of the National Assembly and 12 of the House of Representatives, has been formed few days ago. The Committee comprises lawmakers of just four ‘national’ parties including Nepal Communist Party, Nepali Congress, Federal Socialist Forum-Nepal and Rastriya Janata Party Nepal.
Speaking at the House of Representatives today, RPP lawmaker Rajendra Lingden demanded that representatives of RPP, Nepal Workers and Peasants Party, Rastriya Janamorcha and Naya Shakti also be included in the Committee.
The four parties have one member each in the House.
Lingden was of the view that forming the Committee without including all parties in Parliament was against parliamentary norms and values.
