Deuba urges UML to stop parliament obstruction
Jan 6, 2017-Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba has renewed his request to the opposition parties to allow Parliament business, stating that only a successful parliamentary system can safeguard republicanism in the country.
The NC chief, who is also the former prime minister, stressed the need of holding local elections by amending constitution for an effective implementation of the constitution.
Inaugurating the Tanahun fair organised by local chamber of commerce and industry in Damauli on Thursday, Deuba urged the main opposition CPN-UML not to disrupt Parliament by respecting the Supreme Court’s recent ruling.
On Monday, the apex court had declined to issue an interim order against the constitution amendment bill registered by the government, citing the principle of separation of powers.
The UML opposes the move and has been organising protest programmes across the country to press the ruling parties to withdraw the bill. The main opposition party has been disrupting the Parliament business for a month.
Deuba said that the House business should be resumed to decide the constitution amendment bill.
