HoR session: NC demands fair investigation into cooperatives fraud


KATHMANDU – In today’s session of the House of Representatives (HoR), the major opposition party Nepali Congress called for an impartial investigation into cases of cooperative fraud.

When the meeting commenced, NC lawmakers stood up from their seats, prompting Speaker Devraj Ghimire to grant time to NC general secretary Gagan Kumar Thapa to express his views. Thapa highlighted allegations against incumbent Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Home Affairs, Rabi Lamichhane, in cooperative disputes, questioning his suitability to remain in office amid these controversies.

According to Thapa, Minister Lamichhane is allegedly embroiled in disputes related to Surya Darshan and Suprim Cooperatives, casting doubt on his eligibility for the ministerial position until these issues are resolved. Thapa underlined the need for an impartial investigation, stating, “It is uncertain whether he is guilty or not. He will undergo investigation. However, he faces allegations of cooperative misappropriation. The question arises whether the accused individual can ensure an impartial investigation.”

Thapa stressed on the need of creating an environment for cooperative victims to reclaim their deposits, calling on Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ to make efforts towards establishing such an atmosphere.

He said while the NC wished for a smooth operation of the House, they awaited a prompt response from the Prime Minister regarding its concerns.

After listening to Thapa, the Speaker expressed hope that the government would pay attention to the matter, acknowledging its significance.
