KATHMANDU, Dec 18: The main opposition Nepali Congress has demanded that the government withdraw the Constitutional Council related ordinance as early as possible.
A meeting of the NC Parliamentary Party Woking Committee held on Friday termed the government's act of promulgating the constitutional council related ordinance without calling a parliament session as undemocratic.
Pushpa Bhusal, NC Whip, said that the meeting demanded the government withdraw the ordinance at the earliest.
She also said that her party urges the government to call a parliament session as soon as possible.
On December 15, the government issued the ordinance related to the first amendment to the Constitutional Council (Functions, Duties and Rights and Responsibilities, and Work Procedure) Act, 2077 BS.
The NC has accused the government of delaying the holding of the winter session of parliament.
Expressing concern over the alleged corruption in the government’s response to the COVID-10 pandemic, the party has demanded the government take action against those involved in irregularities.
The NC also drew the government's attention to take necessary initiatives to provide dues of sugarcane farmers from the sugar mills immediately.
