Home Minister asks NC cadres to clear rumours on MCC


Butwal, Mar. 8: Minister for Home Affairs and Nepali Congress (NC) leader Bal Krishna Khand has asked the NC cadres to make people clear about the US government's grant assistance MCC since many rumours have been spread on MCC despite it was in national interest.

At a programme organised to handover the GP Koirala Memorial Journalism Prize in Manigram of Rupandehi district on Tuesday, Minister Khand said voters should be informed to reduce the possible loss that could happen just after the MCC ratification.

He added that the move of MCC ratification remained successful as the NC remained in its favour whether the party was in the government or in opposition.

The Home Minister also urged the media persons to reveal the fact and truth relating to the MCC while adding that leaders of other political parties spread misinformation to the people on MCC.

Minister Khand also defended the interpretative declaration on MCC ratified by the parliament.

On the occasion, Khand argued that NC's victory in the upcoming poll was imperative to safeguard democracy and civil and press freedom.

On Tuesday itself, Minister Khand addressed the 63rd anniversary of Shanti Namuna Secondary School at Manigram in Tilottam Municipality.

On the occasion, he inaugurated school buildings and HM Lab.
