The parliament meeting obstructed thrice before and rescheduled for 3 pm today has been obstructed yet again following the objection of the major opposition party.


Speaker of the House Onsari Gharti announced the meeting of the parliament was adjournment until tomorrow morning.

The major opposition party Nepali Congress (NC) has been demanding   a probe into the leakage of budget information before its presentation at the parliament on May 28.

The budget estimates for fiscal year 2016/017 amounting to Rs 1.048 trillion was tabled in the parliament by Finance Minister Bishnu Prasad Poudel.  
NC parliaments took the stance that the Legislature-Parliament should not proceed with its business until an inquiry was carried out on the incident.

Speaker Gharti repeatedly asked the opposition's parliamentarians to be seated in their respective place so as to carry on the parliament's business but they continued with their objection, resulting in the adjournment of the parliament meeting until Tuesday morning.

A proposal seeking a theoretical discussion on the budget estimates was scheduled to be presented at the Legislature- Parliament by Finance Minister today but owing to reservations of the major opposition several times, the parliament meeting has been adjourned.
