Fight in Nepal’s Parliament – level 2

27-01-2015 07:00

The politicians in Nepal’s Parliament worked on a new constitution when the debate changed into a fight.

The opposition members did not like what they heard, and they rushed to the stage. The speaker on the stage was safe because security guards formed a cordon in front of him.

Politicians even stepped on desks and threw chairs. People postponed the meeting for later, and people criticised the opposition for its bad behaviour.

Difficult words: rush (to move fast), cordon (line for protection), postpone (to plan something for later).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
