KATHMANDU, Aug 20: Prem Suwal, a lawmaker from Nepal Workers and Peasants Party, has demanded the government to make necessary arrangements to treat the prime minister in the country.
Participating in question-answer session at the House of Representatives on Tuesday, lawmaker Suwal inquired Deputy Prime Minister and Health Minister Upendra Yadav whether there was any hospital in the country to treat the prime minister. Citing PM’s recent Singapore visit for his routine check-up, Suwal stressed the need for massive reforms in the health sector to have the VVIPs treated in the country.
“Can’t we have our well-equipped hospitals and call doctors from Singapore for PM’s check-up?” Health Minister Yadav said that the PM needs to go to Singapore since Nepali physicians have referred him.
Adding further, Minister Yadav stated that the government is working on setting up a world-class hospital and medical education institution in a bid to make it possible to have all kinds of health facilities in the country.
