KATHMANDU: A lawmaker from the United Democratic Madhesi Front (UDMF), in a parliament meeting today, announced that the Front had decided to pull back its support for the incumbent government and it would formally apprise the Speaker about this.
Parliamentarian Mahendra Raya Yadav of Tarai Madhes Loktantrik Party said the support was withdrawn as the 3-point agreement forged in course of formation of the incumbent government was not implemented. Then he announced a boycott of the today’s meeting.
No sooner parliamentarian Yadav shared that the UDMF would boycott today’s meeting in the parliament, parliamentarians from Federal Socialist Forum Nepal, Federal Samajbadi Party among other disgruntled Madhesh-centric parties walked out of the meeting hall in a gesture of boycott.
UDMF is a political collation of three Madhes-based parties while the Federal Alliance that also comprises Federal Socialist Forum Nepal is a collation of multiple regional political parties including the Madhes-based parties.
The Madhesh-centric parties want the endorsement of constitution amendment bill registered at the Legislature-Parliament before holding local body’s poll on May 14 this year.
Parliamentarian Ram Krishan Yadav urged the government to endorse amendment on constitution amendment bill before holding upcoming election.
Attention of the government on the same and other contemporary issues was drawn by other parliamentarians as Rewati Raman Bhandari, Prem Suwal and Lokmani Dhakal. RSS
