Nepali Congress, the main opposition in Nepal’s parliament, has declared its intention to disrupt the budget session until a parliamentary committee is established to investigate cooperative fraud allegations against Home Minister Rabi Lamichhane. Lawmaker Gagan Kumar Thapa voiced the opposition’s stance, accusing Lamichhane of misusing authority and interfering with investigations. Thapa emphasized that parliamentary proceedings won’t advance without the committee’s formation.

Despite efforts for consensus, including discussions on overseeing the budget and government plans, the opposition remains firm on its demand for a probe committee. Thapa criticized the government for obstructing dialogue and pledged continued opposition until the committee is established.

Following Thapa’s address, opposition lawmakers staged a protest, leading to the adjournment of the session. The opposition’s persistence reflects deepening tensions over Lamichhane’s alleged involvement in fraud, prompting ongoing protests and disruptions in parliament.

The opposition’s demand for a probe into Lamichhane’s alleged fraudulent activities underscores the political turmoil surrounding the issue. As the standoff continues, the formation of a parliamentary committee remains a critical point of contention between the ruling alliance and the opposition.
