Kathmandu: Minister for Finance Janardan Sharma has tabled ordinance on budget amid obstruction from the main opposition CPN-UML.

The main opposition CPN-UML has obstructed the meeting of the House of Representatives, yet again on Friday. The UML lawmakers left their seats immediately after the start of the meeting and picketed the bell.

The UML HoR members argued that those who were taken action by the party could not attend the meeting and also chanted slogans against Speaker Agni Prasad Sapkota accusing him of abetting the UML party split.

The UML had taken action against 14 lawmakers including leader Madhav Kumar Nepal, which the Speaker denied to approve.
