I did not mention non-parliamentary words, says PM Oli
KATHMANDU: Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has said the Speaker of the House of Representatives removed the inappropriate phrases from parliamentary record as the expressions made by others were provocative, indecent and non-parliamentary.
Prime Minister Oli further said he did not use any non-parliamentary words rather the expressions made by others in the House were provocative, indecent and inappropriate.
At a press meet organized following his return home upon completion of a weeklong official visit to Vietnam and Cambodia this evening, he said all should maintain respect and decorum of the parliament. “Those raising voice for the integrity of the parliament in the past when there was feudalistic regime are now silent when the fundamental institutions of republic and supreme agency of the state are being disrespected,” he said.
Regarding the question raised over some bills recently registered at the Parliament, Prime Minister Oli stressed that the society should bring the laws into practice itself to make the Nepali society a modern, developed and civilized one.
He said that interpreting the draft of the bills, registered by the government, in a different way and tearing it before holding discussion at the House was not a good deed.
The Prime Minister expressed the belief that the Parliament would pass the bills appropriately. It may be noted that the Federation of Nepali Journalists has been protesting against the media council bill, registered by the government at the National Assembly.
He said, “Amendments can be made on the bills by holding discussions. It is not necessary to be arrogant. The government will not bring any laws randomly.”
Issuing a press release after his arrival, PM Oli asserted that his visits to Viet Nam and Cambodia bolstered Nepal’s relations the two countries while brightening Nepal’s image in the international forum.
PM Oli shared that air service agreement with Viet Nam and thorough discussion on cooperation on tourism, trade and investment were some significant achievements.
