Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba has urged Democratic Socialist Party Chairman Mahantha Thakur to help him endorse the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) from the Parliament.
During a meeting held at the PM’s official residence in Baluwatar on Thursday, Deuba and Thakur discussed contemporary political issues along with the MCC.
It has been learnt that the Prime Minister told Thakur that the role of Democratic Socialist Party will be important to pass the MCC from the Parliament.
In response, Thakur said that his party is positive towards the parliamentary ratification of the MCC.
On top of that, Prime Minister Deuba also said that the alternative of Speaker Agni Prasad Sapkota will also be sought if he expressed his reluctance to table the MCC in the Parliament.
He also urged Thakur to help him if the situation demands to remove the Speaker.
Meanwhile, Thakur said that the government should take the decision on the MCC at the earliest. He further said that the party will make its position clear on the MCC after the government takes decision on the issue.
