The opposition parties in the House of Representatives drew the attention of the government to take action against all those found guilty in the Balkumari incident.

Two people were killed during the protest staged by EPS Korea aspiring youths in Balkumari area of Lalitpur on December 29.

Speaking at the meeting of the lower house today, CPN (UML) whip Mahesh Bartaula demanded action against those responsible for the incident in Balkumari, while accusing the government of failing to take action against all the people found guilty by the committee formed to investigate the incident.

Likewise, President of Rastriya Swatantra Party, Ravi Lamichhane, demanded action against the guilty, while referring that the inquiry committee formed to study the fatal incident concluded that the Minister of Physical Infrastructure was responsible for the incident.

MP Prem Suwal said that the people found guilty in various cases of corruption should be punished. He also said that government should bear the expenses incurred by the parliamentarians during their foreign visits and thereby stop MPs from going on foreign visits sponsored by other countries and embassies.

As soon as today's meeting started the opposition MPs stood up from their respective seats in protest, which led Speaker Devraj Ghimire to give them time to speak.

Meanwhile, ruling Nepali Congress MP Deepak Khadka raised the issue of leasing of Nepal Scout's land, while claiming that all the due process was completed for the same.
