Tilottama – The Tilottama municipality of Rupandehi has decided to use the vehicle used by the mayor and deputy mayor as an ambulance.
Mayor Vasudev Ghimire said that the decision was taken as there was a shortage of ambulances to take the critically ill patients of Corona to the hospital.
Mayor Ghimire has been using Lu 1 Jha 360 and Deputy Mayor Jageshwari Devi Chaudhary has been using Scorpio number 326. “In the current situation, it is not appropriate for us to ride in a vehicle when the citizens are scattering at home without getting an ambulance,” Ghimire said.
He said that seats and oxygen cylinders were being managed in the vehicle and it would be used as an ambulance from today. Up to 200 people are being infected daily in Tilottama district but most of them are infected after Butwal sub-metropolis.
