Katmandu: The Legislature-Parliament will start deliberations on the impeachment motion against suspended chief of Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authoirty (CIAA), Lokman Singh Karki, on Tuesday.The impeachment motion against Karki was registered by 157 lawmakers from the CPN-UML and CPN (Maoist Centre) on Wednesday evening. With UML already supporting the motion and Maoist also deciding in favour of it, the largest party in the parliament, Nepali Congress, is yet to come up with its official position on the motion.But NC President Sher Bahadur Deuba met Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal on Saturday and reportedly assured him of his support for the motion. Student leaders also met Deuba on Sunday and urged his party to go for Karki’s impeachment. Deubua is said to be in a dilemma because although he personally is supportive, many influential leaders in his party are against impeachment.
