November 28, Kathmandu : Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli today visited ailing Rastriya Janamukti Party former general secretary Gore Bahadur Khapangi at latter’s residence at Nakhu Dobato in Lalitpur and inquired about his health condition.
During the visit, PM Oli pledged to provide Khapangi’s family with all kind of assistance the government can do in the treatment of Khapangi. Oli was accompanied by Vice Chairman of CPN-UML Bamdev Gautam and Minister for Information and Communications Technology Sherdhan Rai.
Khapangi, 71, suffers from paralysis to one side of his body and is speechless after he sustained deep head injuries in an accident at the Exhibition Road in the Capital two years ago.
The family said that although Khapangi was taken to hospitals like Bir, Neuro and Norvic and to Singapore for treatment and around Rs 17. 5 million has been spent in the treatment, his health is yet to improve. Earlier, Khil Raj Regmi-led government had released Rs 500,000 for Khapangi’s treatment.
