Nepali Congress lawmaker Gagan Thapa has raised questions over the State Partnership Program (SPP).

Saying that Nepal cannot take part in any program involving Nepal Army, Thapa, during the meeting of the House of Representatives on Wednesday, said that Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba should answer on the issue.

He said that the doubts on the issue will be cleared if the Prime Minister answers the queries in the Parliament.

The main opposition CPN-UML lawmaker Pradeep Gyawali had also demanded the government's answer on the matter in the Parliament meeting today. He said that the agreement will not be accepted under any circumstances.

The UML has been protesting after the draft of the SPP agreement was made public in a section of Nepali media.
