Kathmandu, Sept 29 : Nepal's legislative session of the Constituent Assembly (CA)as been disrupted again on Monday after the lawmakers of the Terai-Madhes Democratic Party (TMDP) picketed the rostrum.

Soon after chairman Subas Nemwang announced the beginning of the session's Special Hour, Hridesh Tripathy of the TMLP opposed the government's policies and programmes describing them as being anti-Terai.

He objected to the government's decision to stop issuing permit for transport service between India and Nepal. The government has scrapped the earlier practice of issuing permit for local transport to operate up to certain distance in both the countries for 24 hours.

He said such a ban will affect normal life in Terai especially during the festival season.

Tripathy also demanded that the provision in Assembly regulation of imposing party whip in Constituent Assembly be scrapped and the Ministry for Constituent Assembly be dissolved.

Earlier, the session was disrupted as the Nepali Congress (NC) lawmakers were protesting against the government for not clarifying the subjects missed during the budget announcement, Nepalnews reported.
