Probe committee formed to investigate budget leakage case
Kathmandu, 31 May – The ruling and the opposition parties today agreed to form an eight-member probe committee to investigate into the budget content leakage before it was tabled in the parliament.
Citing this reason, the main opposition Nepali Congress had been frequently obstructing the parliament meeting since Monday.
The probe committee was formed under NC lawmaker Ramesh Lekhak. The CPN (UML) chief whip Bhanu Bhakta Dhakal had brought this proposal and chief whips of NC and the CPN Maoist Centre Chinkaji Shrestha and Hitraj Pandey respectively, seconded it.
The proposal was endorsed unanimously by the parliament. The committee is assigned to conduct investigation and submit a report within three and half months. With this step, the NC has withdrawn its obstruction.
