Chairman of the Parliamentary Account Committee (PAC), Chitra Bahadur KC said that while investigating property details of members of the royal family, if the need to summon the king arises he would not hesitate. On Thursday, the committee asked the government to provide details of the property of the royal family members within 15 days.
"If the government fails to get property details of the royal family, PAC has the authority to send a letter to the King and summon him before the committee," KC said speaking at the Reporter's Club on Saturday. "We will make a thorough investigation of the royal property."
KC assured that the royal property overseas would also be investigated by using international sources.
Narendra Bikram Nembang, Minister of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs said that the probe committee should use all necessary resources to investigate the royal family. Leader of Nepali Congress, Narahari Acharaya said that investigating royal property is an old demand. He added that late King Birendra's property could be used in the development projects in Nepal.
Similarly, at another program senior leaders said that election to a constituent assembly would not only decide the fate of the monarchy and is the only solution to nation's political problems.
