25 Oct,Kathmandu: The largest party in the Legislature-Parliament, Nepali Congress, has decided not to obstruct the execution of the impeachment motion against Chief of the Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) Lokman Singh Karki.
The central committee meeting of the party held today concluded that the impeachment motion should be moved ahead as per the House rule and procedures.
Stating that a motion of impeachment against the CIAA Chief was moved to the House as per the constitution, the meeting thus decided not to interfere in its execution.
The meeting chaired by party President Sher Bahadur Deuba reached to a conclusion that the Impeachment Recommendation Committee should be allowed to look into the motion freely, according to party Spokesperson Dilendra Prasad Badu.
The meeting handed the party senior leaders the responsibility of holding consultations with other political parties regarding the motion.
At the meeting, party President Deuba and senior leader Ramchandra Poudel said there was no need for the party to immediately come up with an official decision regarding the impeachment motion as there was the Impeachment Recommendation Committee within the Parliament to determine its (motion’s) fate, as stated by party central member Ram Krishna Yadav.
The party is likely to discuss about the motion in its parliamentary party meeting also.
The ongoing meeting of the Nepali Congress which started at the party central office at Sanepa from October 20 has decided to take the leadership of constitution implementation by amending the constitution on the basis of consensus.
Badu said the party also decided to take the initiatives for immediately holding the local body election making the Local Level Restructuring Commission complete the restructuring works at the soonest. The party has also reached the conclusion to mobilize central representatives in the 75 districts for making the party organization strong and initiate the necessary debate on national issues.
Prior to this, most of the members speaking in the meeting had expressed suspicion over the impeachment motion that the CPN (Maoist Centre), the party that is leading the government, together with the main opposition party, the CPN (UML), has registered in the parliament, without informing the ruling coalition partner.
They stressed that the party should take an appropriate decision on the matter only after making a deep study on the background of the impeachment motion.
Only youth leaders Bishwa Prakash Sharma, Gagan Thapa, Surendra Pandey, Dhanraj Gurung, Pradip Poudel and Badri Pandey have so far openly expressed their views that the party should decide in favour of the impeachment motion. RSS
