Vice-Chairperson of the main opposition party, CPN (UML), Dr Bhim Bahadur Rawal, has said that treaties and agreements should be signed considering national interest as supreme.

During the 'special hour' in today's meeting of the House of Representatives, leader Rawal cast doubt over the Millennium Challenge Corporation agreement and raised the question of how would it be implemented at a time when it has not been passed by the House.

He shared, "Some provisions mentioned in MCC are contradictory to the constitution of Nepal. It is not in favour of the nation."

The UML vice-chairperson argued that our land could not be handed over to any company in the name of MCC.

He stressed that diplomatic relations with any country should be made strong but attention should be paid on the thing whether or not it is in favour of the country while signing a treaty.

Leader Rawal expressed the view that all lawmakers should get an opportunity to study MCC and drew attention that all should involve utilising the country's resources keeping national welfare as the condition.

Stating that country's independence and dignity should not be put at risk, he argued that foreign intervention would be increased if MCC is passed.

He said, "It should be made clear if it is a grant."
