KATHMANDU, August 1: The main opposition party, CPN-UML, which has been obstructing parliament over the issue of gold smuggling, is planning to propose the formation of an parliamentary inquiry committee to investigate the case.

The CPN-UML has announced that it will put forward the proposal to form an inquiry committee during today's meeting. The CPN-UML has agreed to this decision in the Business Advisory Committee meeting called by Speaker Devraj Ghimire.

Earlier, the CPN-UML had been obstructing parliament, due to which a meeting scheduled for yesterday was also postponed. However, after an agreement was reached in the party to propose the formation of an inquiry committee, the CPN-UML has stated that it will cooperate and allow the parliament meeting to proceed if the ruling party agrees to their proposal. Or else, they might cause further obstruction, a party leader said.
