Kathmandu: 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. Following the obstruction, the meeting has been postponed for 15 minutes.

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.

Different ordinances including Railway Ordinance, 2078; Social Security (First Amendment) Ordinance, 2078; Nepal Police and Province Police (Work Execution, Supervision and Coordination) (First Amendment) Ordinance, 2078 and Acid and other Harmful Chemicals (Regulation) Ordinance, 2078 are scheduled to be tabled in today’s meeting for the approval.
