KATHMANDU, Oct 5: The main opposition party led by Chairman KP Sharma Oli has yet again obstructed the meeting of the House of Representatives (HoR).

In the midst of the UML obstructions at today’s meeting, Minister for Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Gyanendra Bahadur Karki presented the annual progress report of the National Dalit Commission 2076-77 BS at the meeting, on behalf of Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba.
The lawmakers of UML chanted slogans such as “we dont want black money”, “looting the country is not allowed”, “maintain parliamentary supremacy”, “down with conspiracies to split the party”, “prohibit non-lawmakers from entry”, among others.
The next meeting of the HoR is called for 1PM on October 8.
