Parliamentarians in the National Assembly, the Upper House of the Federal Parliament, have urged the government to manage COVID vaccines for all the citizens as soon as possible.

Speaking at zero hour of the session today, parliamentarians expressed concern about the increasing risk of the spread of coronavirus infection as people have started crowding with the easing of lockdown restrictions and called for managing vaccines to all at the earliest in such a situation.

"India has adopted greater precaution against COV- ID-19 at present whereas Nepal has been witnessing crowds of people, which is a matter of great concern," said Udaya Sharma Poudel.

"Sanitisers have not been kept in public transport vehicles," she lamented.

Jaga Prasad Sharma demanded that the Upper House forward the Bill Related to the Civil Service as its lingering has hampered the functioning of the Public Service Commission.

Similarly, speaking in the special time, Ramesh Jung Rayamajhi said the twothirds majority government led by KP Sharma Oli had flopped due to its own causes rather than other parties.

Ram Narayan Bidari urged the present government to work in favour of farmers and workers as well as development.

He said the comments made by leaders of political parties regarding the Supreme Court's mandamus had created a void in constitutional morality.

Thagendra Prasad Puri demanded strict implementation of laws related to the sale and supply of goods in the market to ensure that consumers are not fleeced and there is no artificial shortage of goods.

Dr Bimala Rai Poudel called for forwarding the bill related to citizenship as soon as possible.

"Corruption, which is rife in most public sectors of the country should be curbed and the incidents of violence, killings and rape reported across the country should be stopped," Chakra Prasad Snehi said.

Similarly, lawmakers Khimlal Devkota, Komal Oli, Bhairab Sundar Shrestha, Devendra Dahal and Anita Devkota put their views on various contemporary issues.
