Four lawmakers, who were obstructing the Legislature-Parliament session for a long time, have withdrawn their protest on Sunday, after forging an agreement with top leaders of the major political parties and House speaker.
Lawmakers Bisendra Paswan of Dalit Janajati Party, Buddha Ratna Manandhar of Nepa: Party, Rukmini Chaudhary of Sanghiya Loktantrik Manch and independent lawmaker Sardul Miya Hak held talks with Speaker Subash Chandra Nembang and top leaders of the UCPN (Maoist), Nepali Congress and the CPN-UML on Sunday.
The agitating lawmakers decided to withdraw their protests after the big three top leaders agreed to address their issues within the next 15 days.
The lawmakers were demanding that the rights of marganilised communities such as Dalit and indigenous groups should be ensured in the new constitution.
Besides the parliament, the lawmakers were also obstructing the Constitutional Committee (CC) meetings from April 1 to press for the same.
