CPN (Maoist Centre) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal said that he agreed to endorse the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) with an interpretative declaration to save the post of Speaker.
Addressing a Central Committee meeting, the Maoist supremo made it clear that he was compelled to make an agreement to ratify the $500 million grant compact after the main opposition CPN-UML hatched a conspiracy to break the coalition and to remove Speaker Agni Prasad Sapkota from his post.
“The alliance was on the verge of collapse due to the MCC. The UML also tried to break the coalition and to dissolve the Parliament. We decided to endorseMCC with an interpretative declaration to foil the UML’s attempt to break the alliance,” he said.
He claimed that the UML will be pushed to the corner again by keeping the alliance intact.
“The coalition would have fallen apart had there not been an agreement to ratify the MCC. We pushed the UML to the corner once again by foiling its attempt,” Chairman Dahal said.
