KATHMANDU — The main opposition party Nepali Congress (NC), which had obstructed the parliament on Friday too, has obstructed the Parliament meeting on Sunday demanding that the administration provide Rs 200,000 to earthquake victims to rebuild their houses at once.
Speaking after asking time from Speaker Onsari Gharti Magar, NC leader Arjun Narsigh KC warned that they will obstruct the proceedings at the House until their demands were addressed.
Following the obstruction, Speaker Onsari Gharti Magar announced that the meeting was postponed for an hour.
KC came down heavily on the government saying that the victims are yet to receive relief even after 14 months of the quake.
Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli was scheduled to inform the House about the present status of reconstruction works and progress on distribution of assistance to the earthquake victims. He was also scheduled to inform the House on Kabul Attack that had claimed lives of 13 Nepalis.
The largest political force in the parliament has been obstructing the House meeting for the past few days protesting the government’s failure to address the concerns of the earthquake victims.
