UCPN (Maoist) Central Committee Chairman Pushk Kamal Dahal Prachanda has called Chairman of the Main Opposition CPN (UML) KP Sharma Oli on the issue of MCC. He urged Oli to take a decision on MCC.
On Thursday evening, Prachanda telephoned Oli and asked him to decide on the MCC. In response, Oli challenged the decision to pass the MCC as it was the government’s responsibility. He wrote a letter to the MCC saying that he would pass it to remove himself from the government and challenged Prachanda to pass it.
You said you would pass the MCC to remove me. He then asked for time to pass. You have the majority. Saying that it is not necessary to ask me about this, Oli has replied to Prachanda. Prachanda wants the alliance to be broken and the MCC to be passed. So he is engaged in discussion.
Bishnu Rijal, deputy chief of the UML’s propaganda department, has even posted on social media about Prachanda’s phone call to Oli to talk about MCC.
He wrote in the MCC that it was not without his decision that the Chairman of the Maoist Center, Pushpa Kamal Dahal, called him last evening and promised that he would pass it after removing KP Oli. After the removal, it is said that he has written a paper saying, “We will pass it in 4-5 months.” He is currently in power and has 165 members in the House of Representatives. Decide first, the CPN (UML) will decide.
Earlier on Thursday morning, US Assistant Secretary of State Donald Trump telephoned Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba, Oli and Prachanda to discuss the MCC’s passage in parliament. In talks with the three leaders, he called for the MCC to be passed by parliament
