The highest legislative body in Nepal is the Parliament. It represents the voices and interests of the Nepalese people and is essential to the country’s government. It is a matter of honor for someone to visit there. Our school got a huge chance to visit the parliament. All the teachers and students are very happy and thankful to visit there. On June 8, 2023, we (the senior school) went to the parliament, which was located at New Baneshwor.
We reached there at 10 am in the morning. There we were amazed by the beauty of the place. The place was beautiful and quiet as well. There were beautiful and greatly designed buildings of the parliament. After the security check at the main entrance, we explained the rules while watching the parliament. We were instructed that we could not clap even if we liked the speech and needed to remain silent throughout the program. After entering the hall we discovered that the meeting hadn’t yet begun. We waited for some time.
After that, the members of parliaments were given 2 minutes to raise the issues and talk about them. The moment was inexpressible for we were an audience to the national issues being addressed. The speakers, Rabi Lamichhane, Binod Chaudhary, and Rajendra Lingden had their turn for the speech, where they discussed the annual estimate (budget) of revenue and expenditure for 2023/24 for achieving economic growth. The session was filled with experiences for a lifetime.
