KATHMANDU: Nepali Congress (NC) leader Gagan Thapa has challenged Prime Minister KP Oli to be present at the House of Representatives (HoR) and discuss the development progress so far as claimed by the Prime Minister.
Taking part in Wednesday’s meeting of the Parliament, lawmaker Thapa challenged PM Oli to face the parliament. “Merely giving big talks in front of party cadres is not the solution,” Thapa said, adding, “If you (PM) have the guts, I am ready to debate with you in the House.”
Thapa extended the invitation in order to discuss and debate on the works completed by the government in its three years of governance.
He said, “I invite you to the HoR to hold a debate session based on facts and statistics.”
Prime Minister KP Oli was scheduled to present the annual reports of Madhesi Commission and Tharu Commission of the fiscal year 2076/77 in the meeting.
Meanwhile, the HoR meeting also passed the condolence motion on the demise of former Minister of State for Industry, Commerce and Supplies Aishwarya Lal Pradhananga who passed away at the age of 96 on April 2.
