According to him, the Nepali society has a culture of giving up one’s possessions for the sake of the needy, and his move follows that.
The prime minister says all people should be united in distributing achievements of the country’s progress fairly, and it is also their duty to bear the cost of loss together as this global crisis can be overcome only with partnership and cooperation.
Oli also thanked other countries also for their support in Nepal’s fights against the coronavirus crisis.
