N24 Correspondent, KATHMANDU:- Fatima Sumar, vice-president of the American Support Project Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), has urged CPN-UML chairperson KP Sharma Oli to help get the MCC agreement approved by parliament.
During her visit to Nepal on Thursday, she had her first political meeting with Oli, the Leader of the Opposition. Arriving in Balkot to meet Oli, she had tried to understand the controversy over the MCC agreement and the current situation during the courtesy call.
In response, UML Chairman Oli said that he had tried to pass the MCC agreement in the past when he was leading the government but it was not successful due to the non-cooperation of the Speaker and some other people. Oli said that the role of the ruling party would be more important than his own in the MCC agreement.
“In the past, when we were in the government, we tried, but due to the role of some friends, it could not be passed. Now we are not in the government,” Bhattarai said, quoting Oli.
Oli said the government had not even discussed the MCC agreement with them. Bhattarai told online news that the UML may not be needed to pass the MCC agreement as the government now has the required majority.
