The first meeting of the budget session in the parliament was disrupted by the main opposition party, Nepali Congress. The scheduled commencement of the session was already delayed by 2 hours on Friday as the Congress voiced its disagreement and was adjourned for 15 minutes.

NC’s primary demand centered around the formation of a parliamentary inquiry committee to investigate allegations implicating Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Ravi Lamichhane in a cooperative fraud case.

Despite efforts to restore order and proceed with the session, the Congress members persisted in their protests, chanting slogans and reiterating their call for a thorough investigation into the allegations against Lamichhane.
