Speaking at the meeting of the House of Representatives (HoR) on Monday, UML lawmaker Padma Kumari Aryal had demanded that the concerned minister inform the House about the reason for the repeated hike in prices of petroleum products.
Speaker Sapkota had then issued a ruling instructing the government to inform the House about the reason for the price hike.
The Nepal Oil Corporation has raised the prices of petroleum products effective from Sunday night, with the price of petrol reaching Rs 199 per liter.
