Kathmandu, March 14: The major opposition Nepali Congress has sought the reply from government regarding the appointment of Rastriya Swatantra Party (RSP) President and lawmaker Rabi Lamichhane as the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Home Affairs.

In a session of the House of Representatives, the NC demanded the government response over the Home Minister’s appointment.

Once the session commenced, the NC lawmakers stood from their respective seats, prompting Speaker Devraj Ghimire to grant time to Badri Prasad Pandey to put forth his views.

Pandey expressed his concerns over the appointment of a person who is under investigation for his alleged involvement in the misappropriation of cooperatives funds. The appointment has cast doubt over a fair investigation into the matter.

He demanded the Speaker’s ruling to the Prime Minister for proper response. The Speaker said the House attention was drawn into the issue, expressing his hope that the government would also pay heed to it. RSS #nepal
