He urged, “Let’s rise above ethnic community, religion and political parties and lets work for the greater good of the country and people. For that to happen, let’s create an enabling environment and follow good practices.”

Members partaking in the committee alerted about incidents occurred in some parts of the country that intended to jeopardize the communal amity and goodwill that have been existing in the Nepali society for centuries.

They spoke of the need for the parliamentary committees to take initiatives to end the situation where the country was drowning in the swamp of corruption and the parliamentarians becoming a mere onlooker.

They pressed for giving outlet to some pending bills related to civil service, police and education.
