10 packets of chili powder recovered from CA hall

Ten packets of chilli powder have been recovered from Constituent Assembly building in Kathmandu .

The packets were found on the several corners of the building half an hour before the meeting began.

Parliament secretary Spokesperson Mukunda Sharma said that the recovery was a saddening one.

Meanwhile, security in the CA building has been heightened. Even the former prime ministers and all the CA members are being thoroughly checked with a metal detector before entering the building.

Likewise, microphones on the opposition bench have been removed. Federal Socialist Party Chairman and CA Chairman Ashok Rai expressed his dissent over the removal of the microphones and informed that he will take the matter to Chairman Subas Chandra Nembang.

The microphones could have been removed citing security reasons as the opposition lawmakers had hurled several microphones during the Monday night CA fiasco.

CPN-UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli had sustained injuries after a microphone hit him in the chest.

Meanwhile, the opposition party lawmakers expressed their dissent over the security check stating that their side was being checked rigorously.

UCPN (M) leader Agni Sapkota informed that party Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal, leader Baburam Bhattarai and Bijay Kumar Gachhadhar met with CA Chairman Nembang and drew his attention towards the strict checking of the opposition party leaders.

The opposition leaders were disgruntled stating the security check was being done to lower the morale of the opposition lawmakers. “Are you trying to make the CA building a prison?” they asked Chairman Nembang.

In the meantime, the government is planning to officially inform the Nepal-based diplomatic agencies about the recent developments of the political situation. The Foreign Ministry is scheduled to hold a press meet at 3 pm today to officially inform the diplomatic missions.
