Oli thanked the United States on Sunday for providing aid with vaccines to Nepal. In the tweet, Nawaraj Karki, a young man, answered to the Prime Minister about various themes.
” Namaste, Prime Minister.” Approximately 9,000 young people have passed the EPS test and are waiting to enter Korea. Please hold senior-level discussions on this. Thank you.
Tilak Rana has also made a similar claim in PM Oli’s tweet.
10,000+ young people who have finished the entire process are still wondering if they will be able to go to Korea. We’ve been waiting for the previous fifteen to sixteen months, wanting to go to Korea. We couldn’t even get the authorities to help us. Prime Minister remains the last hope. Please take the diplomatic initiative with Korea and send us persons who have completed the entire process and not let us down. Thank you.’
South Korea has been shut down for the previous 14 months. It has been a long time since I accomplished everything. This has gone completely unnoticed. Use your initiative to help 10,000 young people as soon as possible, thank you.
That’s only an example. Prime Minister Oli’s recent tweets contain several grievances like this. In the aftermath of Thapa’s death, the Prime Minister sent his sympathies. There were responses like this. They’ve also cited President Bidhya Devi Bhandari, Foreign Minister Pradip Gyawali, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in their tweet. When Foreign Minister Gyawali congratulated his US counterpart Anthony Blinken for announcing the vaccine support, a similar criticism was made on Twitter.
EPS Pidit Nepal is a Twitter handle created by teenagers who could not go to Korea because of their poor language skills.
It has been 15 months since the start of COVID lockdown in Nepal. There are more than 10,000 young people who failed the language test as a result of this.
Following the conclusion of the first phase of the lockdown, mobility in and out of the country for employment was permitted. However, Korea did not. The EPS language test cannot be administered in 2020. It is unknown if the language test will be held in 2021. Two-year graduates are unable to re-apply.
According to the EPS Korea section of the Department of Foreign Employment, 958 men and 69 women have left Nepal for Korea in 2020. Before the infection spread, they went there.
Nepal should not pursue the matter alone, said Indra Gautam, director of the EPS Korea branch. The government of Nepal is acting from a high position.
No final decision has been made yet about this matter. According to the ministry’s spokeswoman, Joint Secretary Deepak Kafle, the decision has not been made yet. Employment within the Foreign Affairs Department is certain.
Foreign employment was likewise unaware of this. At this time, no one has been asked to report from Korea yet. They cannot be sent until asked to.
He stated that HRD Nepal informed him that no process has been initiated to acquire a new one. The phrase has been extended to include those who live there.
Ministry of Foreign Affairs has reported that no such discussion has taken place. No decision has been made yet on Korea despite the government’s policy of helping employers relocate with no issues.
Former Foreign Minister Pradip Gyawali recently stated that he is really interested in the Nepalese people who could not go to Korea. Korea ceased taking laborers from the rest of the country following COVID wave. He claimed to be in daily dialogue with the youths who had been unable to go to Korea. Raghuvir has just been moved to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
In 2007, Nepal and Korea signed an agreement to deploy Nepalese workers to Korea on a yearly basis. Approximately 589,618 people have applied for the language test over the past 13 years, and 448,771 people have taken the examination. out of those 69,760 men and 7,617 women, 13% or 77,377 have graduated.
The remaining two per cent have submitted an application form for the position. Out of that, 62,852 males and 4,020 women and 88% of Nepali adolescents are in Korea by February 7, 2076.
