Most of the lawmakers speaking in the meeting of the House of Representatives on Tuesday showed concern over the exorbitant price hike of daily essentials and ethnic and communal clashes erupting in different places.

The lawmakers demanded strong enforcement of law and order to address the eruptions of communal and ethnic clashes. Similarly, they raised the issues as problems facing the farmers, and sufferers of natural disasters such as landslides and floods.

Thakur Prasad Gaire suggested that it focused on infrastructure development. Artificial shortage of goods and price hike in the run-up to the festival is worrying, he viewed.

Janardan Sharma said time has come to effectively enforce citizen's rights provisioned in the constitution. Peace and order should be maintained in this multi-ethnic, multi-religious and multi-cultural country as per spirit of constitution, he viewed, urging the government to create such an atmosphere that the incidents occurred in eastern Tarai and Nepalgunj would not repeat.

Hari Dhakal worried why none was worried over the declining economy.

Dhruba Bahadur Pradhan viewed the country as needing to improve good governance.

Pradip Yadav said why some businesspersons were not paying electricity tariff despite repeated prodding by Nepal Electricity Authority.

Abdul Khan demanded that the government remove double taxation on NRNs when they invest in Nepal.

Ram Prakash Chaudhary shared that farmers in some eastern Tarai districts were facing hard times for scanty rainfall, so their problems should be addressed.

Similarly, Chitra Bahadur KC questioned why those who failed in exams were recommended for district judges. He further argued it was proved that Nepal could not afford federalism.

According to Prabhu Saha, madarasa run in the country should be recognized as community school.

Dr Amaresh Kumar Singh drew the government's attention towards rising cases of attacks on doctors.
