KATHMANDU, Feb 27: Senior leader of Nepali Congress(NC) Ramchandra Poudel has said the ratification of MCC grant agreement through parliament is in the larger interest of the country. He accused the communist parties of shying away from the agreement made for the MCC grant.

Senior leader Poudel said it during a program organized to unveil the bust of martyr Bikram Pariyar on Saturday. "Poverty causes violence and terrorism. So, MCC is for reducing poverty by propping up the national economy. Upgrading of transmission line and roadway are the projects being developed under MCC grants," he stressed.

According to leader Poudel, the role the late Pariyar played for democracy is unforgettable.

Central member of the party Shankar Bhandari said martyrs must be paid tribute and collective efforts made for prosperous Nepal. 

Another central member Govinda Bhattarai accused the communist parties of walking away from the responsibility of materializing the project despite demanding the MCC grant. He further said the political bickering over MCC grant agreement was a ploy to push the national economy to crisis.

Minister for Internal Affairs at Gandaki Province, Dobate Bishwokarma, viewed that the NC should internalize the problems facing martyr Pariyar's family.
