A meeting of the Legislature-Parliament today continued deliberations on the motion of impeachment against Chief (now suspended) of the Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA), Lokman Singh Karki.

Taking part in the deliberations, lawmaker Mohan Bahadur Basnet expressed his displeasure at the process taken in introducing the motion to the House.

Yubraj Gyawali claimed that the proposal was brought as per the constitution and the Legislature-Parliament work operation regulations, urging all lawmakers not to harbour doubt on its intention and vote for it.  

Alleging Karki of insulting the parliamentary committee, contempt of court, disobeying the people's representative body and of giving psychological torture to employees and terrorizing the public, he said such activities by the CIAA chief compelled lawmakers to move a motion of impeachment against him.

Shyam Kumar Shrestha said none in the country is above the law and the impeachment motion is meant for bringing that person misusing the authority to book.
Shibalal Thapa, describing Karki's appointment itself as a wrong move, said political parties have a time for making the correction of their mistake through the impeachment motion.

Rameshwor Phuyal said Karki had to face the impeachment motion for running a 'parallel government' and neglecting the presence of the parliamentary committee.  

Likewise, Gangalal Tuladhar said the impeachment motion is in the House for safeguarding democracy and sought its endorsement.

Rajendra Kumar KC was of the view of finalising the impeachment motion soon.  

Buddhiram Bhandari and Kamala Sharma, giving their views in support of the impeachment motion, insisted on its approval.

The Legislature-Parliament shall meet again at 11:00 pm on November 16.
