KATHMANDU, Feb 22: General Secretary of the Nepali Congress, Gagan Kumar Thapa, has said that the ruling partners are not expected to vote against a proposal brought by the government.  

Talking to media persons here today, leader Thapa shared that being a part of the government, voting against the government's proposal would be unethical and impractical.  

He added, "It will be unethical and non-political to say we are the ruling coalition parties after casting vote against the government's proposal. It is not possible to be in the ruling alliance if the ruling partners cast their vote against the government's proposal." 

The NC General Secretary expressed the belief that all the parties would cast their votes in favor of MCC after the discussion. 

Saying the incumbent government has tabled the proposal brought by the then UML-led government as it is, he urged political leaders not to change their word while remaining in and out of the government. 

He further said that NC would train its rank and file to speak in favor of the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) compact. 

Leader Thapa mentioned, "We want to make it clear before the people why the NC is in favor of the MCC Compact. The party's rank and file are in its favor."
