Nepali Congress lawmaker in the National Assembly Radhe Shyam Adhikari has accused the KP Sharma Oli-led government of undermining the Parliament by not calling its winter session and issuing ordinances one after another. The government recently issued two ordinances to facilitate registration of COVID-19 vaccines and punish people guilty of forcing reconciliation on rape victims.

Adhikari said while the issuing of ordinances could be justified, justification of a move alone was not enough. “In a democracy, following procedures and norms is also important,” he said. He added that the government should have discussed the new laws in the Parliament rather than issuing ordinances.


He said the Parliament was the only place where the government’s arbitrary behaviour could be effectively checked.
