KATHMANDU, Oct 4: Minister for Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Gyanendra Bahadur Karki tabled four bills for discussion in the National Assembly on Monday. 

Law Minister Karki, on behalf of Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba presented the Food Hygiene and Quality Bill 2077, Public Service Broadcasting Bill 2077, Archive Protection (First Amendment) Bill 2077 and Security Printing Bill 2077 to the Legislation Management Committee for clause-wise discussion. The meeting has approved the proposal. The 58th Annual Report 2021 of the Office of the Auditor General (OAG), too, was tabled in the meeting.

The National Assembly forwarded four bills for clause-wise discussion amid obstruction by the main opposition party CPN-UML.

The main opposition party CPN-UML protested in the National Assembly session on Monday. Amidst the protests of the CPN-UML, the meeting approved the proposal to send the four bills submitted by the government to the Legislation Management Committee for clause-wise discussion.

Despite the main opposition party protesting in the National Assembly, the regular work of the meeting and the work on the agenda did not stop. The UML has been agitating against the Speaker of the House of Representatives as he did not issue the notice of expulsion of 14 UML lawmakers as demanded by the party.

While the CPN-UML lawmakers surround the rostrum in the meetings of the House of Representatives, they protest in the National Assembly meetings by rising from their chairs and chanting slogans.

The next meeting of the National Assembly is scheduled to be held on September 10 at 2PM.
