The 7th session that started after six months was postponed following its first meeting on Wednesday. The province assembly meeting has become uncertain after the lawmakers of own party, Nepal Communist Party, registered a no-confidence motion against CM Poudel.
At the onset of the meeting, the parliamentary party leaders of the political parties representing the province assembly had accused Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli of dissolving the parliament against the letter and spirit of the constitution.
The 110-member Bagmati Province Assembly comprises 80 members from NCP, 22 from Nepali Congress, three from Bibeksheel Party, two each from Nepal Majdur Kisan Party and Rashtriya Prajatantra Party and one from then Naya Shakti Party. ----
