Kathmandu, July 11: The National Assembly (NA) members have drawn the government’s attention to ensure immediate relief to the people affected from flooding, landslide and inundation, and take effective measures for the treatment and control of COVID-19.

Speaking at the special hour in today’s meeting of the NA, CPN (UML)’s Indira Devi Gautam stressed the need for coordination among the stakeholders for effective implementation of the programmes unveiled by the government.

However, NA member of the Nepali Congress, Anita Devkota, accused the government of working against the democratic norms and values while urging the government to develop the NA as a platform to put issues of public.

She also asked for the government’s focus to make proper arrangements for rescue to the communities affected from flooding and landslides and ensure vaccines against COVID-19.

Likewise, Taraman Swar of CPN (Maoist Centre) argued that the government failed to address the issues of socio-economic, educational and tourism sectors adding that the sectors are in shambles.

Also speaking at the special hour, Pramila Kumari of Janata Samajwadi Party Nepal said that people in and around Saptari and Sunsari districts are terrified due to increased water levels in the Koshi river.
