Parliamentary Committee directs govt to send aspiring Nepali workers to SK pronto
KATHMANDU: The Delegated Management and Government Assurance Committee of the National Assembly directed the government to immediately send the aspiring Nepali workers, who have passed the EPS language test, to South Korea.
A meeting of the Committee held in Singha Durbar on Sunday directed the government to send the Nepali workers to South Korea promptly.
Around 10,000 Nepali workers, who have passed the EPS language test, had recently filed a complaint at the committee arguing that the government had delayed the process to send them to South Korea.
Ram Narayan Bidari, Chairman of the Committee, said that the committee directed the government after completing necessary process following a discussion with the concerned minister.
During the meeting, committee member Radheshyam Adhikari drew attention of the government to not make delay in sending all the workers to South Korea by arranging vaccines against Covid-19.
Another Committee member Khimlal Devkota came down heavily in the meeting that the government has shown rashness by not sending the Nepali workers to South Korea yet.
Responding to the questions raised by the committee members, Chief Secretary Shankar Das Bairagi expressed his commitment to play an important role to send the workers, who have passed the EPS exam, to South Korea as soon as possible.
