Kathmandu, Jan 7: Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal on Saturday said the long-stalled Parliamentary affairs would resume from tomorrow (Sunday) and all important bills like the constitution amendment, impeachment motion and election-related ones would be taken forward thereafter. “The Parliamentary business will resume from tomorrow. What proposals we have forwarded for the elections and integrating the nation would be moved forward. The Supreme Court also delivered its verdict to deliberate over the proposals in Parliament,” PM Dahal said.
Saying obstruction of Parliamentary business is against the nation, PM Dahal also pointed out the need for steering the country towards economic prosperity after going for the elections, integrating the nation and increasing acceptability of the constitution. He also appealed to all to help in this regard. He was launching a book entitled ‘manchhe bhitrako manchhe’ authored by political expert Shanta Shrestha in the Capital. “Is it in the national interest trying to accommodate Madhesi, Tharu and Janajatis in the constitution? Or is it in the national interest trying to deprive others except self. People should be aware of it,” he said.
The collection contains 52 travelogues, essays and other topics covering the experiences of 47 years of the political period from 1968 till 2015. It is published by the Shanta Shrestha Foundation. The book’s editor Ashiok Subedi said the collection also contains a sketch of heroes and villains of that period. Writer Shanta Shrestha said the collection contains the experience of the Nepali political life and details on the political characters.
Finance Minister Krishna Bahadur Mahara was also present on the occasion. Prof Dr Gopal Shivakoti, Rashmi Karki, Rama Luintel, Tara Khadka among other personalities contributing to social transformation were honoured at the programme. Republican leader Ramraja Prasad Singh and historian Madhav Raj Joshi were also honoured on the occasion.
