Lawmakers locked out



An employee of the International Convention Centre unlocking the door of the Constituent Assembly Hall after CA Secretariat reached an agreement with protesting staff, who had locked out CA members, to meet their demands within three days, on Monday.


KATHMANDU: Today’s CA meeting began two hours behind scheduled, as the staff of the International Convention Centre did not open the door of the CA building, demanding allowance for meals and snacks, as well as 80 per cent incentive allowance.

Leaders who came to attend the CA meeting at 1 pm went back after seeing the door of the CA building locked. Some were seen asking CA Chairman Subas Nembang and CA Secretariat staff about the cause before returning to attend the meeting. Others didn’t return at all.

Although the representatives of agitating staff and CA Secretariat reached a verbal agreement to address the staff’s demand within three days, some of the agitating staff refused to open the door, seeking written agreement. However, they relented later and opened the door.

Meanwhile, CA Secretariat Spokesman Mukunda Sharma issued a press release, stating that the secretariat would take action against those who refused to open the door even after an agreement was reached during the talks held in Singha Durbar.

“The secretariat will ensure such an incident was not repeated,” Sharma said.

A CA Secretariat source said ICC Managing Director Ram Lal Tuladhar was given 24 hours to furnish a clarification about the incident.
