KATHMANDU: In an unprecedented turn of events, the House meeting today witnessed a rare exchange of heated arguments between Speaker Subash Chandra Nembang and Chairman of Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal (RPP-N) Kamal Thapa. The debate sparked over the use of extra time by Thapa while presenting a Public Interest Motion at the House. Exceeding the given 10 minutes to present his proposal, an eloquent Thapa went on with his delivery for extra two minutes. Speaker Nembang then wittily remarked that Thapa would have to stop his presentation at the moment. Stating that it was ‘something serious’ that he had been talking about, Thapa roared back at Nembang, maintaining that he was about to finish his speech. When Nembang, with aggression, again ruled that Thapa had already taken two extra minutes than what was provisioned, the latter visibly lost his temper and gestured back at the microphone, as if to continue with his speech. The climax occurred as the furious Speaker switched off the microphone on Thapa’s podium. When the mike made no sound as he finger-tapped its tip, he flanked the air with his hand, and set himself in motion, stepping out of the podium. The lawmakers representing his party stood at his support and approached the Speaker’s podium in protest. The Marshalls then intervened to create a line of defense against the RPP-N lawmakers. The exchange of acrimonious words went on. While Thapa would claim his right to expression was interfered, Nembang, strict about rules, was adamant about the existing provisions of the House. Nembang even ordered that the all accounts of Thapa’s expression at the House be removed from record. The debacle finally ended with Nembang commissioning extra few minutes to Thapa to read out his proposal from a written script.
