TANAHUN, Feb 24: Senior Nepali Congress (NC) leader Ram Chandra Poudel has said that the current ruling alliance could be broken if Pushpa Kamal Dahal and Madhav Kumar Nepal do not cooperate in the ratification of the MCC compact agreement through parliament.

At a press conference organized by the Press Union Tanahun in Damauli on Thursday, he clarified that the Nepali Congress was not in favor of maintaining the alliance if the CPN (Maoist Center) and the CPN (Unified Socialist) did not cooperate in the ratification of the US-funded grant project.

"The coalition parties should support the government's proposal. If the coalition does not support it, the Congress should pass the MCC even with the support of the main opposition party," he said. Senior leader Poudel urged the coalition leaders not to think about maintaining the alliance by making MCC a failure.

Stating that the MCC was a gift by the American people, senior leader Poudel said some people were spreading unnecessary confusion about the MCC. "The MCC is not American imperialism, it is a development project," he said.
