KATHMANDU, May 26: Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal has urged the major opposition Nepali Congress (NC) President Sher Bahadur Deuba to end the ongoing deadlock in parliament.  

Prime Minister Dahal reached the residence of NC President Deuba and the two leaders had a one on one. The PM also met other NC leaders separately. In the meeting, PM Dahal urged Deuba to take initiatives to resume the House business which the NC has been obstructing. The NC has been demanding the formation of a parliamentary probe committee to investigate the misappropriation and misuse of cooperative funds. 

Following the meeting, NC Deputy General Secretary Jeevan Pariyar said that the PM was seriously making efforts to resume the House business and his meetings with the NC leaders were aimed at the same. He added that the meeting was fruitful regarding the agenda discussions.  

A meeting among the senior leaders of the major parties is scheduled later today to discuss the resumption of the House business. Pariyar further shared that NC President Deuba had invited PM Dahal and CPN-UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli to his residence for talks as he was not feeling well to attend a meeting outside.
