The policies and programs for the new fiscal year were presented by President Bidya Devi Bhandari before a joint session of the Federal Parliament on May 24.
In today’s session of the upper house of the federal parliament, Minister for Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs, Govinda Sharma Koirala, on behalf of Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba, proposed to hold discussions on the government's new policies and programs.
Taking part in the deliberations, Bhairab Sundar Shrestha, Shekhar Kumar Singh, Bhagawati Neupane and Bimala Ghimire, who have suggested amendments to the policies, defended the amendment proposals.
They alleged that the recent local level elections were held in an unjust manner despite the government's claim that they were held in a peaceful environment.
