The Rastriya Prajatantra Party has urged the government to rescue and repatriate Nepalis who are currently in crisis due to the global coronavirus outbreak.

The party has requested the government to take back home its citizens who are stranded after being expelled from their job and whom the employers or hosting governments have not taken care of.

Issuing a statement on Sunday, the party also said the government should conduct health checkups of the citizens who are waiting at various Nepal-India border points and let them enter the country. Likewise, the government should help the workers who are walking to their houses from various urban areas after losing their jobs due to the lockdown, according to the party.

Meanwhile, the party has demanded that the government form an all-party mechanism to control the coronavirus outbreak in the country. Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has already rejected the idea.
