Sending another letter with asked for its approval.
A meeting with key producers and stakeholders of the industry was held yesterday to take stock of the situation. Our industry has 10,000 active members [who are involved with ongoing projects] and over five lakh members. We want to set up camp so that they can get vaccinated easily. “

Closing the initiative would be easy, should be done at a time when the state is facing a shortage of vaccines, and centers are temporarily closing.
