Kathmandu. UML parliamentarians have blocked the House, demanding the government’s answer, challenging it to prove that it has taken the name of President KP Sharma Oli in corruption.
As soon as the House of Representatives meeting started on Friday, the Speaker of the House Devraj Ghimire gave time to UML Chief Whip Padam Giri to speak.
Giri then accused the then Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli’s involvement in the irregularities in the gold fountain kept in the Pashupatinam temple by the MP from the ruling party and warned that the House would not be able to function until the government’s response.
He said that the government’s response to the statement by the MP of the ruling party that he had put copper in the gold tank and the said MP should apologize.
Stating that the UML is also in favor of opening all corruption files and taking action, he said that the issue of corruption should be discussed in the current session.
However, he also challenged to prove the baseless accusations against his president Oli. Even though Speaker Ghimire repeatedly asked to sit down, UML MPs stood up and protested.
Subas Nemwang, Deputy Leader of the Parliamentary Party, said that although the House should not be disrupted, it was forced after serious accusations were made against the leader of the main opposition party. Along with this, the discussion on policies and programs in today’s parliament meeting has also been affected.
