KATHMANDU, March 19: The Legislature-Parliament has decided to send the bill of the incentives and services of the former dignitaries and officials of the country to the State Management Committee.
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Home Affairs Bimalendra Nidhi had proposed the bill in the Secretariat of the Parliament. However, the house has sent the controversial bill to the committee for the further clause-wise discussion.
The government was preparing to endorse the bill through the fast-track way, which was criticized in the House, citing that important bills related with the election and the constitution implementation is in the pipeline for the endorsement.
Generally, the bills are sent to the concerned committees for the clause-wise discussion after the registration. The government, however, was in line to endorse the bill without sending it to the committee. Earlier, the House endorsed the bill related with the hike in the salary and facility of the lawmakers through fast-track system.
Most of the lawmakers have registered the amendment proposal for the bill including the facilities for the former lawmakers and few of them have registered to cut off the facilities for the former dignitaries.
