Kathmandu, May 19: Opposition parties in the House of Representatives (HoR) have decided to allow Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Home Affairs, Rabi Lamichhane, to put his views in the lower house session today.     

A joint meeting summoned by major opposition Nepali Congress (NC) President Sher Bahadur Deuba at the Federal Parliament Building in New Baneshwor today agreed to listen to the Home Minister.     

According to NC Chief Whip Ramesh Lekhak, the opposition welcomed the agreement between the government and the opposition on Saturday to establish a parliamentary committee for an investigation into the alleged role of Minister Lamichhane in the misappropriation of cooperative funds.     

The meeting demanded that the committee be formed after the Minister put the views in the meeting and it will prevent the meeting from entering its agenda until the committee is formed.     

Top leaders from the NC, the Rastriya Prajatantra Party, the Janata Samajbadi Party (People’s Socialist Party) Nepal, and the Loktantrik Samajbadi Party (Democratic Socialist Party) Nepal were present at the meeting.     

The NC has for long enforced the obstructions in the lower house proceedings alleging the involvement of the Deputy Prime Minister in the embezzlement of cooperative funds. It demands the formation of a parliamentary committee to ensure a fair investigation into the matter. (RSS)
