KATHMANDU: Speaker Onsari Gharti Magar has postponed the schedule of presenting the government’s policy and programme by a day to May 8 after Nepali Congress demanded extra time to discuss the contemporary national problems before the pre-budget discussion and the presenting of policy and programme, said the Speaker’s Press Adviser Babin Sharma. NC Chief Whip Chin Kaji Shrestha said the Speaker agreed on Monday to let the House discuss the national problems before President Bidhya Devi Bhandari could present the policy and programme of the government.
