KATHMANDU — The government has expressed its commitment to form a probe panel to address the demand of the main opposition party Nepali Congress.
The probe panel will investigate into leak of vital facts and figures of budget that was presented by Finance Minister Bshnu Paudel in the House on Saturday.
A meeting of the ruling alliance called by Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli on Tuesday morning made the decision to that effect.
The government agreed on forming the probe committee after NC repeatedly disrupted the parliamentary meeting on Monday for four consecutive times despite Speaker Onsari Gharti’s attempt to commence the meeting.
The NC had announced that it would not let the debate on budget begin unless the Parliament formed a probe panel to look into how media got information about size and features of the budget announcement before it was presented at the House on Saturday.
On Monday too, the NC had obstructed the House proceedings demanding investigation into the budget leak.
