SLMM lawmakers boycott Parliament meeting

KATHMANDU: The Samyukta Loktantrik Madhesi Morcha (SLMM) has boycotted the Legislature-Parliament meeting on Sunday saying that their major demand of constitution amendment was not addressed.

SLMM lawmakers stood up from their respective seats as a gesture of their protest of the session after House Speaker Onsari Gharti Magar announced the commencement of the meeting.

On the occasion, Jangilal Yadav of Tarai Madhes Loktantrik Party blamed that government of making Madhesi people irate by announcing local elections date without creating a favourable political environment.

Saying the local poll could not take place without amending the constitution, leader Yadav demanded the national charter be amended through consensus and collaboration.

With Yadav concluding his views, SLMM lawmakers walked out of the session. RSS
