NC objects Gandaki Province assembly call


Gandaki, April 17: The Nepal Congress parliamentary party in Gandaki Province has objected to Province Chief Dilliraj Bhatta's call of assembly meeting, reasoning that a case on the fate of present assembly was sub judice at Supreme Court.     

Parliamentary party leader Surendra Raj Pande reminded in a press statement that Assembly meeting was summoned by ignoring SC's interim order, constitution and existing law. "It is sheer irresponsibility of the Province Chief to summon assembly meeting for April 19 by brushing aside SC's interim order and case is awaited to be heard at court. It is contempt of court," he argued.     

Pande also denounced the appointments the provincial government has made over this time.     

The NC had filed a writ petition at SC on April 9, against appointment of UML leader Khagraj Adhikari as Province Chief Minister with the voting of the Speaker. The NC stated the appointment was unconstitutional.     

In response, the SC had issued an interim order asking the Gandaki Province government not to proceed with any works till settlement of the case. (RSS)
