Stating that the construction of municipal level hospitals is underway in 753 municipalities and rural municipalities across the country, Shrestha said that proper planning should be done while constructing hospitals. He said, “People should make proper plans for what work should be done in 100 days, 6 months and a year and the public should get services easily.”
