Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli had called a ‘emergency’ meeting at his official Residence in Baluwatar to take the decision to prorogue the winter session of the parliament. 

The winter session of the parliament is prorogued at the time when political parties, particularly the ruling ally CPN Maoist Center and the dissident faction of the ruling UML led by Madhav Kumar Nepal had been trying to register no-confidence motion against of the government to form a coalition government by taking into confidence the main opposition Nepali Congress.
