KATHMANDU, June 2: A parliament session erupted into laughter when the ruling party lawmaker Khagaraj Adhikari spoke about broken chairs in the House floor and drew the attention of Speaker Krishna Bahadur Mahara to repair them.
"Right Honorable Speaker, its the fourth time I fell off my chair. Luckily, no such unpleasant incidents occurred so far, and I remained unhurt," the lawmaker said. He said that Parliament Secretariat totally ignored his plea to repair the broken chairs on the House floor.
"Dear Speaker, how many times should I ask the Parliament Secretariat for the same? Isn't it a serious issue?" he questioned the speaker. He urged the Parliament Secretariat to remove the broken chairs and bring new ones. On the occasion, Parliament Speaker said that his attention was drawn on the matter.
