UML obstructs Madhesh provincial assembly meetingAccuses Minister for Economic Affairs Sanjay Yadav of corruption.
The CPN-UML on Saturday obstructed the meeting of the Madhesh provincial assembly, accusing Minister for Economic Affairs Sanjay Yadav of corruption by transferring government funds unlawfully.
As soon as the provincial assembly meeting commenced, UML assembly member Lakhan Das demanded Chief Minister Saroj Kumar Yadav to clarify to the assembly why the conditional grants to the local level and funds of various ministries were transferred to projects only in Sarlahi at the end of the financial year.
The meeting was adjourned for 10 minutes after Das said the party will not allow the provincial assembly to proceed until the chief minister clarifies the matter.
Minister Yadav was scheduled to present a proposal to start deliberations on the appropriation bill in today’s meeting.
The UML that has been obstructing proceedings in both the House of Representatives and National Assembly over the prime minister’s remarks for the last couple of days has resorted to the same approach in the provincial assembly as well.
