MCC agreement should be implemented: Energy Minister Rayamajhi

Kathmandu: Newly appointed Minister for Energy, Water Resources and Irrigation Top Bahadur Rayamajhi has said that the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) agreement is in Nepal’s favor and it should be implemented.

Talking to media persons after taking office on Sunday, Energy Minister Rayamajhi requested for assistance in the implementation of MCC. “I do not believe it is a crime or a military strike,” he said, adding that there were points in the agreement that could weaken the country’s self-esteem.
