Kathmandu, August 8
The UML has said it will no longer obstruct House of Representatives proceedings.
The opposition party has been obstructing both houses demanding the formation of a high-level probe committee to investigate the 100 kg gold smuggling case.
The UML said it was ready to permit today’s House session under the stipulation that Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Narayan Kaji Shrestha presents the government’s stance regarding the gold smuggling scandal.
However, the opposition party has stated that it will stage a protest if the Home Minister fails to commit to establishing a high-level committee to investigate the aforementioned scandal.
Despite a gathering of senior leaders from major political parties along with Speaker Devraj Ghimire at the Prime Minister’s residence in Baluwatar, aimed at resolving the impasse in the proceedings of the House, the meeting concluded without reaching a definite resolution.
