Kathmandu, 10 Nov 2014: The budget session of the Legislature-Parliament has come to an end from today. In today’s second meeting of the parliament, Speaker Subas Nembang read out the letter sent by President Dr Ram Baran Yadav to prorogue the session.
The parliamentary meeting has ended without determining the Constituent Assembly (CA) meeting. The CA meeting has not taken place as the Constitutional-Political Dialogue and Consensus Committee has not yet submitted its report as its tenure was extended by November 1. The budget session convened on last May 30. Â The CA meetings were held for a total of 164 days while total 199 hours 15 minutes in 71 days were spent on its concrete business.
Meanwhile, discussion was not held on all presented bills due to several rounds of protests from opposition after the budget was tabled at the parliament. In the same session, President Dr Ram Baran Yadav had delivered his address on government’s policy and programme for fiscal year 2071-72 BS on June 29. The budget of the fiscal year 2071-72 BS presented by Finance Minister Dr Ram Sharan Mahat on last June 1 was approved after discussion.
At the same time, six out of total 20 bills tabled in the parliament and thirteen bills were sent to concerned committee for clause-wise discussion, said Speaker Subas Nembang.
