The Non-Resident Nepalis Association (NRNA) has called on the government to immediately create an environment conducive for the Nepali nationals stranded abroad to return home in Nepal.

A delegation led by NRNA founder president Dr Upendra Mahato made the demand in a six-point memorandum it submitted to Minister for Labour, Employment and Social Security Rameshwor Raya Yadav on Sunday.

The NRNA has also called for distributing essentials like foodstuff to those facing shortage of food and accommodation and rehabilitate those people returning from abroad.

In the memorandum, the association has urged the government to create, by any means, an environment so that the Nepalis who are stranded abroad and urgently need to return Nepal could do so. It has also demanded the government make arrangements to keep them in quarantine and self-isolation once they returned home, NRNA Covide-19 High Level Committee’s press coordinator Chiran Sharma said.

Pledging a certain amount in proportion to the fund that the government will put in for this purpose, the NRNA has also called for availing counselling by a psychologist to the foreign-returnees while they are in isolation.

The association, likewise, has urged the government to make arrangements for the distribution, in coordination with NRNA and the Nepali diplomatic mission concerned, to the non-resident Nepalis abroad who are immediately in need of support.

Pledging a certain amount in proportion to the fund that the government will put in for this purpose, the NRNA has also called for availing counselling by a psychologist to the foreign-returnees while they are in isolation.

Arrangements should also be made for providing information to the foreign returnee NRNs for starting new industries and enterprises, it has said in the memorandum.

Similarly, the memorandum calls for rehabilitating the foreign-returnee Nepalis and for bringing programmes aimed at motivating them in self-employment and employment, for collecting the details of the skills they have and setting up a ‘skill bank’ for using the same in Nepal and for providing the details of this to the Nepali industrialists and business community. It also calls for making provisions for providing concessional loans to the Nepal-returnee NRNs and for creating employment opportunities for them in the country.
