Kathmandu, May 18: The ruling coalition and the main opposition parties have reached an agreement to form a parliamentary inquiry committee to resolve the ongoing deadlock in Parliament.

Chief Whip of Congress, Ramesh Lekhak, announced that during discussions held at the Prime Minister’s residence in Baluwatar today, leaders from the ruling coalition and the Nepali Congress agreed to establish the committee. The terms of reference (ToR) for the inquiry committee will be finalized on Sunday morning after further discussions.

Lekhak described the discussions as positive and productive, emphasizing the consensus among all political parties on the necessity of forming the inquiry committee to address the House deadlock. Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Padam Giri will oversee the creation of the committee’s mandate, which will be implemented by leaders from all parties. It is expected that with this agreement, tomorrow’s parliamentary session will proceed smoothly.

The day’s discussions included phased meetings, starting with Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ meeting with Speaker Devraj Ghimire, Nepal Communist Party (UML) Chairman KP Sharma Oli, Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Ravi Lamichhane, and Law Minister Padam Giri. Following this, Prime Minister Dahal and leaders from the ruling party held talks with the main opposition party, Nepali Congress, including Chairman Sher Bahadur Deuba, General Minister Gagan Thapa, and Chief Whip Ramesh Lekhak.

The Congress had been obstructing Parliament, demanding the formation of a parliamentary inquiry committee to investigate the misappropriation of funds involving Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Ravi Lamichhane’s cooperative.
