Kathmandu, Nepal: Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has alleged the opposition Nepali Congress for raising the issue of speaker and deputy speaker of being from same party.

The issue raised by the Nepali Congress is not appropriate because candidates of the speaker and deputy speaker were not fielded from the same party during the election for the post, Prime Minister Oli said while speaking at a unity assembly of engineering associations held in Kathmandu on Saturday.

Referring to the constitutional provision, Nepali Congress has raised the issue demanding resignation of speaker or deputy speaker for being a single party. 

Then CPN UML and the CPN Maoist Center had shared the post of speaker and deputy speaker before merging as a single party Nepal Communist Party (NCP).
