 A delegation led by chapter chair Narayan Koirala met with Chief Minister Krishna Chandra Nepali and reminded him to save entire industries including tourism in Pokhara with the timely vaccination to the industrialists and entrepreneurs.

The delegation submitted a memorandum to the Chief Minister, stressing that vaccination to entrepreneurs would ensure the resumption of business and restoration of economic activities. The businesspersons, as the delegation argued, have contact with thousands of people in a day so they are vulnerable to the COVID-19 threats. Unless they are vaccinated, the chance of spreading coronavirus among the businesspersons and in the community is high, the memorandum mentioned.

Receiving the memorandum, CM Krishna Chandra Nepali informed that the provincial government was striving to ensure anti-COVID vaccines to all qualified citizens in the province. "Vaccine is the first priority of the government and necessary budget has been allocated for it," he said, adding that the provincial government was, however, not allowed to purchase vaccine on its own and the federal government itself was allocating the vaccines. However, the federal government was urged to provide adequate vaccines to the province, CM Nepali reminded.

On the occasion, Minister for Law, Communications and Province Assembly Affairs, Bindu Kumar Thapa, said the provincial government begins the vaccine distribution to businesspersons soon after it gets from the federal government.

It was informed that at least 20,000 entrepreneurs were in need of vaccination in Pokhara alone.
