Chief Minister of Lumbini Province Kul Prasad KC has said the provincial government has been active in providing vaccine against COVID to all the children of the province, saying today's children are tomorrow's future.

Saying that the constitution has defined health as the first right of the people, Chief Minister KC said the provincial government should ensure vaccine against COVID-19 to all the children even if it means stopping activities of infrastructure development.

He expressed this view at a programme organised to hand over health supplies provided by Pratiman Chandra Bohara Foundation, Bhairahawa, to Lumbini Province to fight against COVID.

On the occasion, the chief minister said that contribution of social worker and politician Pratima Chandra Bohara was significant as social and political change.

He also thanked the foundation for its support to Lumbini Province to fight against coronavirus saying Lumbini province government was ready to collaborate with the foundation. Similarly, former minister and Chairperson of the foundation Deepak Bohara said that the foundation was working in the social service sector as social service was the main purpose of the foundation.

He added, "We will always move towards the path of social service shown by my father. We will always help the helpless and poor people."
