Nepal Parliament adjourned till Dec.6 after Madhesi parties obstruct proceedings

Nepal-Parliment

Kathmandu, Dec.1 : The Nepal Parliament were adjourned on Tuesday for five days after Madhesi lawmakers repeatedly obstructed proceedings over disagreement with the Revised Bill of the new Constitution.

The agitating Madhes-based parties continuously demanded that the government of Prime Minister K.P. Sharma Oli address their issues at the earliest.

The lawmakers of the Madhesi-based parties trooped into the well of the House and surrounded Speaker Onsari Gharti’s rostrum and chanted protest slogans.

The repeated obstructionist behaviour of the Madhesi lawmakers forced Speaker Gharti to adjourn the meeting till 1 p.m. on December 6.

Earlier, the meeting of Parliament was adjourned till Tuesday following obstruction by the Nepali Congress, reports the Himalayan Times.

NC lawmakers had on Monday objected to Speaker Onsari Gharti after she provided Federal Socialist Forum-Nepal (FSF-N) Chairman Upendra Yadav with time to speak in the House. They had demanded that their party should be given first chance to speak as per the set parliamentary practice. (ANI)
