The CPN (Maoist Centre) has made it clear that the diplomatic initiation taken by the leadership in the context of the US assistance project, the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) compact, was unnecessarily blown out of proportion and vilified.

A press note issued by CPN (Maoist Centre) Chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal's secretariat this evening states that the party has been making its views regarding the MCC Compact clear taking in view the objective situation and considering the people's interest as supreme.

The press note reads: "Our party is determined that the project (MCC Compact) should not be endorsed without revision. We sincerely appeal to the entire party rank and file and the justice-loving people not to be misled by the premeditated propaganda regarding this issue."

The press note further states that the party's serious attention was drawn to the letter written to MCC headquarters on 29 September 2021 on behalf Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba and Maoist Chair Prachanda.

"The letter was written in the national interest and for the protection of the government as the Prime Minister was under pressure to pass the MCC at a time when the coalition government had been recently formed by defeating the regression," the press note said.

"National consensus would be required for MCC and the government needed some time for forging national consensus, the letter read," the press note stated.

"On the one hand there is opposition and a situation of pressure regarding the MCC from the level of political circle, intelligentsia, press to the public level in the country. While on the other hand even the task force formed by the then Communist Party of Nepal (CPN) to study on the MCC has presented its conclusion that MCC should not be passed without revisions.

Based on this as well, there is no situation wherein the coalition will have a common view on this," Chair Prachanda's secretariat said.
