At the forefront of today's proceedings is the Minister of Law, Justice, and Parliamentary Affairs, Dhanraj Gurung, who is poised to present a pivotal proposal. This proposal centers around a bill aimed at staunching the tide of money laundering while concurrently fostering a climate conducive to business growth. Additionally, the House will meticulously scrutinize the report put forth by the Human Rights Committee.
Moreover, in a move that underscores the urgency of the matter, the Parliament Secretariat has announced an additional agenda item—a proposal for the immediate passage of the aforementioned bill.
