KATHMANDU, April 22:The United Democratic Madhesi Front (UDMF) boycotted the Legislature-Parliament meeting Tuesday, too.
With the commencement of the meeting, UDMF-affiliated lawmakers stood up from their respective seats and Speaker Onsari Gharti gave time to Akbal Ahamad Saha to put his views.
Lawmaker Saha, demanding an endorsement of the constitution amendment bill registered in the parliament, said the UDMF was informed by media that the government was replacing the amendment bill with a new one by excluding the issues of demarcation.
He stressed that a high-level boundary demarcation federal commission should be formed first by scrapping the Article 274 of the Nepal's constitution and we should wait for such Commission to submit its report at the parliament to withdraw the existing amendment bill.
Stating that the report of Local- Level Restructuring Commission was not acceptable for the UDMF, he said they would not take part in the election until the report is revised and would not allow the election to take place as well. Then he informed the House that the UDMF was boycotting the today's session. RSS
