Tanahun: Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba has reiterated that the recently ratified Millennium Challenge Corporation compact has been in the welfare of the country.

He also dismissed negative remarks about the agreement as false. He referred to the statement of main opposition CPN-UML leader Bhim Rawal about the project. Leader Rawal has been protesting the project calling it anti-national. The PM asked Rawal why the Cabinet of which he was a member in the past accepted it.

“Why Bhim Rawal did not protest the agreement when the Cabinet of which he was a member passed it. And now why he is protesting it?,” he said while inaugurating a newly-constructed building for Kispang Rural Municipality in Nuwakot district today. “He was supposed to quit the government of which he was a part when it accepted the agreement if he is against the compact,” said PM Deuba.

“I just ratified the agreement that was presented in the House of Representatives by former Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli,” the Prime Minister clarified.
