KATHMANDU, Feb 25: Chairman of CPN (Unified Socialist) and former Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal has said the MCC grant assistance cannot be ratified through parliament without bringing amendment in it. 

Addressing the first Sudurpaschim Province gathering of the party's youth association in Dhangadhi on Thursday, Chairman Nepal said the MCC should be ratified only on the basis of consensus since the MCC has deepened the political crisis in the country.   

Chairman Nepal said his party is in favor of holding serious discussions and consultations among all political parties before the MCC ratification from parliament.

Also speaking at the program, Minister for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation Prem Bahadur Ale said he would abide by the party's official position on MCC. "Rumors have been spread about the ministers of the Unified Socialist party saying they would vote for the MCC ratification. We will not take any decision on our own and the party's decision will be our final decision," Minister Ale said. 

Meanwhile, Minister Ale shared his efforts for the development and expansion of touristic sites in the Sudurpaschim Province.
