He said that though this remedial measure launched to help people affected by the Covid-19 outbreak has come to an end, Finance Minister Uttama Savanayana still wants the ministry to check complaints filed by close to a million people across the country.

“I’m happy to work on this project, no matter how tough it is,” he said. “Everywhere I go, people voice their appreciation of the prime minister as well as finance minister. I believe all government officials are happy to work for the country and its people.”
