Nepal federal Parliament’s winter session begins


KATHMANDU: The winter session of the National Assembly, upper house of federal parliament, began on Friday. The parliament would conduct its business on a total of 27 bills- 10 registered at NA, 15 under consideration at committee, and two forwarded by the House of Representatives.
The Friday meeting of the NA witnessed the lawmakers from the ruling Nepal Communist Party supporting the government activities while those from the opposition Nepali Congress criticizing these.
With the beginning of the meeting, parliamentary party leader of NCP, Dinanath Sharma, reminded that passed four sessions of the parliament were of new experience. The NA was fruitful to both ruling and the opposition, he said, claiming that the government had made headway to economic prosperity in recent two years. Even the public data in the international sphere showed it.
He however said some national pride projects had not accelerated. Rs 18 billion was saved for State coffer after the operation of modern pipeline to bring in petroleum products, according to him.
In the meeting, Nepali Congress parliamentary party leader Surendra Raj Pandey said the bill designed to amend and integrate laws on formation and operation of Nepal special service should be withdrawn and fit to constitution’s spirit.
He further argued that the process of forwarding through ordinance to amend the act on functioning of constitutional bodies was a wrong move. Pandey urged the government to create positive and harmonious environment to lead the nation on the way to prosperity.
Moreover, the government was urged to be pro-active to resolve the border issues as it was getting support from all parties. Lawmaker Pandey also opined for expediting the MCC to be supported by US for infrastructure development in the country.
He also condemned the government’s decision to lease out Nepal Trust’s land to Gokarana Resort while its earlier lease out due in six years.
Similarly, Rastriya Janata Party Nepal’s Brikhesh Chandra Lal viewed that collaboration between the ruling parties and the opposition parties for any good works be taken in the positive light and admitted that desired results could not be achieved in the sector of sustainable development works.
Socialist Party’s Pramila Kumari expressed her confidence that the agreement made between the government and her party concerning the amendment of the constitution would be materialized.
Expressing her confidence that the issues and agenda to be raised in the zero and special hours of the parliament would be properly addressed, she underscored the need to compulsorily include ‘Q and A’ session between the Minister and parliamentarians in the ongoing session.
In the meeting, NA Chairperson Ganesh Prasad Timalsina had read out the letter received from the Office of President on appointments and reshuffle in Council of Ministers and distribution of role and responsibilities.
