The National Assembly lawmakers have drawn the attention of the government to the need of making the transport service more effective by adopting the required health safety measures as life has been adversely affected due to the lockdown that is in place in the country since three months.
The lawmakers, speaking in the 'special time' of the National Assembly session today, said that although the lockdown has been relaxed to some extent, the transport service needed to be made more systematic.
Udaya Sharma Poudel of Nepal Communist Party (NCP) called on the government to take more effective measures for controlling COVID-19. She also called for resolving the hassles associated with the issuance of special passes in the transport sector. Stating that the risk of spread of coronavirus was increasing as transport services are not operating well and there is also the risk of workers losing their livelihood since public transportation is still not operated. The education sector too has been badly affected due to the lockdown, she said, pointing out the need of coming up with a solution to this.
Thagendra Prasad Puri and Parashuram Meghi Gurung of the NCP called for the operation of essential services by the law courts which have been providing only limited services at present and for taking effective measures for curbing corruption.
