KATHMANDU, Feb 29: The political parties in Bagmati Province have reached an agreement to form a special committee aimed at resolving budget disputes in the province effectively.

This committee is entrusted with investigations into the ongoing disagreements between the provincial government and opposition parties regarding budget allocations and addressing them.

The committee is expected to present its comprehensive report by March 12, following a thorough examination of the issues at hand.

Led by Govinda Lamsal, the chief whip of the Nepali Congress in the provincial assembly, the committee comprises two representatives each from CPN (Maoist Center), CPN (Unified Socialist), CPN-UML, and RPP, along with a representative from the Hamro Nepali Party.

With the consensus among the parties, preparations are now underway to convene a Provincial Assembly meeting this afternoon.

The budget dispute arose due to the provincial government’s failure to implement previously agreed-upon measures, particularly regarding the inclusion of projects proposed by opposition parties.
