Former general-secretary of Nepali Congress (NC) Prakashman Singh spoke of the need for the incumbent government to take effective measures against the Covid-19 pandemic to prevent health crisis in the country.

At a programme in Kathmandu today, leader Singh blamed that the incumbent government was indifferent towards controlling Covid-19 and said that the government seemed to be more focused on holding the reign of the leadership rather than protecting the lives of people.

Singh, also former Deputy-Prime Minister, urged the government to make sure that no Nepalis-at home and abroad- suffer due to the pandemic, which is gripping the country alarmingly in its second wave.

Pressing for the need to enhance the capacity of healthcare centres across the country, he wished, “May the government take effective measures against Covid-19 which has already entered the country as a second wave.”

He also underscored the need to operate oxygen plant in big hospitals in major cities.

During the programme, the Ishan Memorial Society had donated Rs 111,000 to children with autism.
