DAMAULI: Nepali Congress leader Ramchandra Poudel has said the ruling coalition can break if Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ and Madhav Kumar Nepal did not lend tangible support in endorsing the Millennium Challenge Corporation compact.
At a press conference organized by Press Union Tanahun at Damauli today, he made it clear that NC was not in favor of keeping the coalition intact if the CPN (Maoist Center) and CPN (Unified Socialist) did not provide support in endorsing the MCC compact.
“The coalition partners should support the proposal brought out by the government. Even if the ruling coalition parties did not lend their support the MCC should be passed on the backing of the main opposition party. This is where NC stands now”, he further shared.
Leader Poudel asked coalition partners to not think that the coalition would remain intact by foiling MCC compact. “If time demands the country can go for an election. Election can be declared soon if needed”.
MCC was a gift of the US citizens, he said, accusing some people of creating unnecessary rumors about its agreement. “MCC is not a project to nurture any imperialism but a development project”, he said, expressing reservation on the sponsored rumor spreading against MCC.
