A total of 12 lawmakers both from the NA and HoR gave their opinions in regard with the briefings of Achhami and Pandey.

In the meeting, party leader and Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ directed the lawmakers to contribute for the cause of social transformation along with good governance, prosperity and social justice, and for making the Federal Parliament more lively further increasing its efficiency.

He was of the view of implementing the decision taken by the party’s latest Central Committee meeting.

As Dahal said, he would apprise the major opposition that it was decided to assign to the Nepal Police Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) the responsibility for carrying out a fair investigation into the smuggling of gold via Tribhubhuvan International Airport.

“The entry of contraband is not just concerned about the revenue leakage of the State but it is connected to an organised crime and the CIB has been handed the responsibility to deal with the case,” the Prime Minister said as quoted by Pandey.
