KATHMANDU: The government is to provide work to the laborers in the informal sector, affected by the lockdown imposed to stem the spread of Coronavirus in the country.

Sharing decisions made by the Council of Ministers at the routine press meet at Singha Durbar today, Government spokesperson Dr. Yubaraj Khatiwada said a decision has been taken to employ the out-of-work laborers from the informal sector at all three levels of government. The local levels will determine the wage, which can be in the form of cash or food.
