The main opposition leader in Parliament, Sher Bahadur Deuba, says he consulted some former prime ministers representing various political parties on the telephone on Sunday to discuss the effectiveness of the government’s response to the coronavius crisis and immediate needs.

The former prime minister said he called Pushpa Kamal Dahal, Jhala Nath Khanal and Madhav Kumar Nepal of the ruling Nepal Communist Party; Lokendra Bahadur Chand of the Rastriya Prajatantra Party; Baburam Bhattarai of the Samajwadi Party; and Khil Raj Regmi, who led the interim government formed to hold the elections in 2013.

“The leaders discussed moving forward seriously in their efforts to protect the Nepalis from the pandemic,” Deuba’s aide Bhanu Deuba said, adding they agreed to meet next soon and prepare a plan in detail.

During his telephonic meeting with the ruling party’s chairman Dahal today, Deuba assured that the main opposition, Nepali Congress, would support the government in responding to the crisis.
