Kathmandu, Nepal, September 16, 2019: The Lawmakers representing to the main opposition party, Nepali Congress (NC), has been obstructing the proceeding in the federal parliament demanding an investigation over Banke incident.
 
Protesting to the incident that the government head Nepal Communist Party (NCP) cadres had assaulted the NC district members including Banke district president Kiran Koirala during a public awareness program last week, the lawmakers affiliated to the NC have been obstructing the proceedings of the federal parliament since Sunday. 
 
The NC has a claim that they would continue the protest programs like obstruction in the parliamentary proceeding unless the government forms a parliamentary probe committee.
 
However, neither the government nor the parliament and its head Speaker Krishna Bahadur Mahara have taken initiation to address the concern of the main opposition. 
 
It is likely that the ongoing obstruction in the parliamentary proceeding would continue further, thanks to the adamant stands from both the sides, particularly the reluctance of the government to address the concerns of the opposition.   
 
As soon as the house session began, NC lawmakers protested against the government by rising from their seats on Monday. 
 
As the lawmaker from NCP Nandalal Roka Chhetri defended to those who were involved in the assault of Congress cadres in Banke, the NC lawmakers become aggressive and picketed the rostrum for allowing lawmaker Chhetri to defend the incident.
