KATHMANDU — The Legislature-Parliament has begun deliberations on the policies and programs disclosed by President Bidya Devi Bhandari on Sunday.
The discussions will go on for three days (till May 12) where various lawmakers will put their views on the policies and programs, while the Prime Minister is scheduled to respond to queries raised at the Parliament on May 13.
As part of the deliberations, lawmakers will take their views on the vote of thanks which was proposed by chief whip of the ruling CPN-UML Bhanu Bhakta Dhakal and seconded by chief whip of the UCPN-Maoist, the coalition partner of the government, Hitraj Pandey.
Speaking at the meeting, Gopal Dahit of Tharuhat Tarai Party Nepal criticised the policy and program of failing to address concerns of the people of various areas of Banke and Bardia victimised by earthquake and landslides.
He also said that the policy and programme could not be implemented and that they would not support them as they were ‘discriminatory’.
Dahit also accused the government of suppressing the protest launched by indigenous and Madhesi for their rights in the Tarai.
Meanwhile, lawmakers of the United Democratic Madhesi Front (UDMF) boycotted the Parliament meeting today as well.
