KATHMANDU: The meeting of House of Representatives (HoR) has been postponed for two days following obstruction from the main opposition Nepali Congress (NC).

At the beginning of Friday’s meeting, NC lawmakers stood from their respective seats to halt the proceedings of the Parliament.

Following the obstruction, Speaker Agni Sapkota had postponed the House for half an hour.

Later, the House meeting was postponed until 1 pm on Sunday by pasting a notice.

The party obstructed the House as soon as the session got underway today alleging the Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) of being discriminatory in the Lalita Niwas land grab scam.

The NC had obstructed yesterday’s session as well.

The anti-graft constitutional body CIAA on Wednesday filed a corruption case at the Special Court against 175 people including former Deputy Prime Minister and Deputy-leader of the NC Parliamentary Party, Bijay Kumar Gachchhadar, indicting them in the Lalita Niwas land scandal.
