Parliamentarians from both ruling parties and the opposition continued deliberation on the issues public importance, including the recent flood and the government's positive intervention in disaster.

The major opposition, CPN-UML, registered the proposal at the parliament, seeking deliberation on the government's effective role, programme and policies to resolve the issues as flood emanating from the construction of dam in the southern border of the country. 

Taking part in the deliberation, NC's Whip Ishwori Neupani argued that there should not be any politicization on the issues in the name of flood, inundation and its repercussions. UML Ram Kumar Bhattarai claimed that majority of the land and around 90 per cent of the houses at Gaur Bazar in Chitwan are inundated due to the dam built by the Indian side in their territory.  

Similarly, CPN-MC Agni Prasad Sapkota stated that Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba should mention the topic relating to inundation in Nepal during the monsoon during his imminent visit to India on August 23.

Parliamentarian Kishore Prasad Shah Teli commented that the government mechanism is weak for the relief and rescue operation in the wake of inundation in various places across Terai.
