SPP is against Constitution, PM should answer today itself: Gagan Thapa

KATHMANDU: Nepali Congress General Secretary and lawmaker Gagan Thapa said that Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba should give a clear answer on the State Partnership Program (SPP) said to be signed with the United States.

He was of the opinion that Nepal should not take part in the programme linked to the interests of the powerful country.

Speaking at the Parliament meeting on Wednesday, he expressed his dissatisfaction over the SPP.

He said that the constitution of Nepal would not allow to sign this kind of agreement.

“We should work together with all powerful countries. But Nepal cannot take part in the programme where the army is involved,” leader Thapa said.

He demanded that the Prime Minister, who is also taking the responsibility of the Defence Ministry, should answer on the matter today itself in the Parliament.
