The government has failed to bring the budget after UCPN (Maoist) lawmakers encircled the rostrum and shouted slogans against its move on Friday. UCPN (Maoist) lawmakers manhandle Finance Minister Surendra Pandey and even snatched away the briefcase while he was heading to rostrum to make the budget speech.
Speaker Subas Nembang deferred the House meeting for Thursday following the Maoist obstruction.
“The Maoists have said that they will strongly protest the government move,” said Nepali Congress leader Bimalendra Nidhi who was present in the meeting, “It is still not clear what kind of protest they are planning.”
On the other hand, Maoist leader Dev Gururng said Government was trying to `Blackmail` Maoist.
