While addressing the gathering Minister Bhim Dhungel said that the Residential Certificate (RC) will help control influx in the State, adding that it will help the Government to plan and execute its welfare programmes in a proper manner. Tourism is becoming second largest industry in the world as it is providing livelihood to many people around the world. He urged the people present to enter this industry and become self reliant. Bek Bahadur Rai said in his address that some anti social elements are trying to mislead the people regarding some of the policies of the Government but these elements will never be able to succeed in their ploy.
