NC suggests Home Minister form committee to prove innocence in fraud case

KATHMANDU: Nepali Congress, the main opposition party, has suggested that Home Minister Rabi Lamichhane could clear his name in a cooperative fraud case by forming a parliamentary committee for investigation.

During Wednesday's House of Representatives (HoR) meeting, Bishwa Prakash Sharma, the party's general secretary, called for the formation of a parliamentary committee to probe the case.

Sharma emphasized that the Prime Minister's announcement of Lamichhane's innocence during a previous parliamentary session lacks procedural legitimacy, suggesting instead that Lamichhane exercise his right to assert innocence through a committee investigation.

Furthermore, Sharma urged Lamichhane to resign from his position on moral grounds due to his alleged involvement in the cooperative fraud case.
