RPP-N warns of House obstruction


Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal (RPP-N) on Thursday warned that the party would obstruct the House if the culprits involved in attacking its leaders, including Chairman Kamal Thapa were not punished.

Addressing the Legislature-Parliament meeting on Thursday, RPP-N chief whip Dilnath Giri urged Speaker Subas Chandra Nembang not to continue the house meeting until those involved in attacking RPP-N leaders, including Chairman Thapa and lawmaker Ganesh Thapa were punished.

He said police had attacked party leaders and hired goons were also used in the attack.

Giri said the government failed to provide security to lawmakers.

He further said the attack was due to the increasing popularity for the agendas being raised by the party.

Giri demanded that the government probe the incident and take action against the culprits.

He also said the party wouldn’t let the House run if the Home Minister failed to give satisfactory clarification regarding the attack.

RPP-N Chairman Kamal Thapa and lawmaker Ganesh Thapa, among others, were injured in a clash at Makawanpur on Tuesday.

Nembang drew the attention of the Home Minister to the need to respond on RPP-N’s concerns in the next meeting of the Parliament.

Lawmaker and chairperson of Women, Children, Senior Citizen and Social Welfare Committee of parliament Ranju Kumar Jha presented the report on National Youth Council bill-2015 at the Legislature-Parliament.
