KATHMANDU, September 20: A meeting of the House of Representatives (HoR) has begun from 11 AM on Monday.
As announced earlier, the main opposition party, Communist Party of Nepal (Unified Marxist Lenin) has obstructed the meeting once again.
The government is planning to endorse the Budget Replacement Bill presented earlier in a similar meeting to replace the Budget introduced through an ordinance by the erstwhile government-led by KP Sharma Oli.
As the government has failed to introduce the budget on time, the country is witnessing a ‘budget holiday’ probably for the first time in its history. So, the government is compelled to pass the Budget Replacement Bill through the parliament at least to provide salary to its employees.
Earlier, on September 10, Finance Minister Janardan Sharma presented the Budget Replacement Bill amid sologneering UML lawmakers.
