KATHMANDU: The meeting of the House of Representatives (HoR) has been adjourned for 15 minutes after lawmakers of the CPN-UML, the main opposition, obstructed the parliament sitting today as well.

The lawmakers of the main opposition party gheraoed the rostrum shouting slogans against Speaker Agni Sapkota.

Speaker Sapkota adjourned the meeting in a bid to strike a deal on the demands put forth by the UML lawmakers.

UML Chief Whip Bishal Bhattarai had earlier said that the House would not be allowed to function as Speaker Agni Prasad Sapkota has not given a satisfactory answer to their demands.

“As there is no consensus on the previous agenda, we will not allow the House to function until we get a reply. Even today, the House will be obstructed,” he said.

Earlier, UML had blocked the House on Wednesday.

UML lawmakers continued to shout slogans and obstruct the meeting despite Speaker Sapota’s repeated request to sit down and allow smooth functioning of the Parliament.

UML has been protesting against the Speaker for allegedly not taking action against the 14 defecting UML lawmakers now in Madhav Kumar Nepal-led CPN-Unified Socialist despite the party’s request to do so.
